About fifty years prior to the coming of Christ, Julius Caesar is famous for saying, ” Veni, vidi, vici.” His report on the outcome of his British campaign was very short: “I came, I saw, I conquered.” He was a war machine, apt for that in every way. His place in history is well-defined in that way.
People were not as sure about Christ’s purpose on this earth, so He had to declare himself. In one such declaration in
John 10:10b (NKJV) Jesus states, “… I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
One came to take life and the other to give abundant life. Given a choice of which one to interact with, who would choose the killer? I choose abundant life. What about you?
