John 10:10 (NKJV)

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Whenever this scripture is quoted, Satan is most often identified as the thief. However, if you look at the context and “listen” to what Jesus is really saying you will see a few thieves identified. I believe Jesus is teaching us that anyone (see verses 8, 12, 13) or any religion (see verse 1) that doesn’t point you to Him, as the way to eternal life, is a thief.

In verse 7, Jesus says, “I am the door of the sheep” – notice he says THE DOOR – definite article and not “a door”. There is no other way into the Kingdom of God or eternal life.

Be confident in knowing that if you are a born-again Christian, you have entered in the right door.

Prayer: Jesus, thank you for making the way to life clear. Help me to be a witness to those that are being robbed of life and destroyed through lack of knowledge. I will forever be careful to give you all the glory. Amen.
