  • MockingBird on John 10:10
    The thief is the devil Back in the garden the thief came in God started to make provision for man then Jesus came to give us life and that more abundantly. Everything that the devil stole from me you we can get back through Jesus Christ. That goes with a life of prayer and reading and church attendance and obeying and submitting to God. We have a job set before us. The way is strait and narrow. Few there be that find it. The way to destruction is wide and well traveled and many there be that go in there at. The way if our Lord is not easy But very ,very rewarding !!!! Life and that more abundantly !!!
