Jeremiah 29:11 (ESV) For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
John 15:8 (ESV) By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.
John 10:10 (ESV) The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

The Lord has come that we might have life, His life to the full, but is this automatic, here and now?
