My Other Favorite, part 5.

October 16, 2021


You and I might have learned John 10:10b in the King James Version as I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 

Consider this rendering —

I came so that my sheep will have life

and have everything they need. 

(Names of God version)

— Imagine.

In the words of John Lennon, “Imagine.” I came so that my sheep will have life and have everything they need. Imagine that.

Jesus wants you to get what you need.

In the words of Mick Jagger, “If you try sometimes, you just find: you get what you need.”

In the words of an 80-something year old farmer who made great coffee, “Don’t ask God to dig a hole if you’re just leaning on your shovel.”

Life’s like that. Even a grace-filled one.
