“A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.” –Jesus
John 10:10 The Message

At the heart of the sixth commandment– You must not kill. – is the responsibility to safeguard life, both yours and others.

God calls His people to nurture and care for all human life: bodily, spiritually, emotionally, mentally, relationally, eternally. Jesus is the Author of life. By choosing to trust Him, we find real life. Introducing others to Him makes a way to save their lives too.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
John 11:25-26 NIV

Do you believe this? that believing in, trusting in, Jesus saves lives eternally? saves yours? others?

Consider, today, what life means to you – real life. Does the way you’re living lead to life? in yourself? in others?
