Could it be that the key to understanding the abundant life of which Jesus talked about for his disciples in John 10:10 lie in applying what John wrote about in his first epistle?
In this context, it might be very important for each of us to ponder upon the following set of questions, based on John’s introduction to his first letter: Is Jesus the source of our joy (1 John 1:1-2)? Is Jesus the source of our communion with one another (1 John 1:3)? Is Jesus the source of our joy (1 John 1:4)? Is Jesus the light of our lives (1 John 1:5-7)? Is Jesus the source of our accepting and our giving forgiveness (1 John 1:8 to 2:10)?
