My Other Favorite, part 3.

October 14, 2021

My Other Favorite Bible verse is John 10:10b, which you and I might have learned in the King James Version as I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

See what nuance this offers you —

My purpose

is to give life

in all its fullness.

(The Living Bible)

— I can remember when Rick Warren’s Purpose-Driven Life book became a merchandising cash cow franchise.

Amid the many excellent points he made in his book was an element that caused some people I served at the time as pastor to question the weight he gave to his Baptist/Calvinist heritage.

I admit I’d not noticed that…maybe it’s become so prevalent in what passes for Contemporary Christian Culture…but that’s another thought for another time.

The Living Bible version quoted above could certainly qualify as our Lord’s Purpose Statement.

In light of His, what’s yours?

Would love to hear from you as always, and also as always, hope to see you back here tomorrow.
