Which side of the comma are YOU living on?

Just a short blurb this morning:

This has been rattling around in my head since it was presented by our new pastor yesterday during his sermon. His new series is about "living like you're dying" - focusing on what's important, what's eternal while bettering situations and relationships here.

He cited John 10.10 during his sermon:

"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."

He had us look at that last comma. So, being the good English teacher, I did...

"...that they may have life [comma] and that they may have it more abundantly"

And, then he asked us - "which side of the comma are YOU living on?"

Do you just have life? Are you just breathin'?


are you living it more abundantly through Christ?
