God wants His children to be happy, because as a child of God through Christ we are to enjoy life, and our life is to be full. In John 10:10 …… I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
John 10:10 tells us that we are to enjoy life, however there is another part to this scripture. It also says “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy”. This can immediately suck the JOY out of your life!!
Who is the thief?
