I really like today's "Faith Food" by Kenneth E. Hagin!

Why Did Jesus Come?

"The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10). 

Why did Jesus come? 

Did Jesus come to give us some creed to live by? Did He come to give us a code of ethics - a list of "do's and don'ts" - to straighten us out? Did He come to start a new religion, or to found a new church? No! Jesus came for one purpose: That we might have life, and that we might have it more abundantly! 

This word "life" is the biggest word of the Gospel. Man needed life, because he was spiritually dead. Spiritual death, which is the nature of the devil, was imparted to man at the fall of man, when Adam sinned. 

The eradication of this devil-nature is what God has worked toward in all the ages. It was the reason why Jesus came to the earth. Jesus stated, "I am come that they might have life." 

The only thing that will meet man's need is the nature of God: eternal life. Nothing can take its place. When a person receives eternal life, he receives the nature of God, the life of God, into himself. This is that divine act that changes a man from the family of Satan to the family of God instantly. 

Confession: The life of God has been imparted to my spirit. I am alive unto God. The life of God - the nature of God - is imparted to my spirit. I will let the life and nature of God that's in me, dominate me. 
The word "life" in John 10:10 is the Greek word "zoe". It means: life in the absolute sense, life as God has it, that which the Father gave to the Incarnate Son to have in Himself, and which the Son manifested in the world. That LIFE is IN us as born again believers! Meditate on the LIFE is in you until the TRUTH of that Word rises up and overflows, affecting every area of your life! The Amplified Bible says this for John 10:10:

10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). AMP

THAT is God's very best plan for YOU! AMEN! Here is Hillsong with "Life":

Shalom in Him!
