Taking Steps Closer to Jesus

Dear friends,

Lately I’ve been dwelling on the words of Jesus in John 10:10

‘The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’ (NIV)

‘Life abundantly.’
‘Life to the full.’
‘A rich and satisfying life.’
‘In all its fullness.’

What an offer! And to receive this gift, all we need to do is take steps closer to Him. The closer we get, the more evident His gift of abundant life becomes.

Our dream here at Vision is that every Australian would know the real life that comes from following Jesus daily. It’s what drives us to print this devotional, broadcast on radio, publish online and distribute resources—all helping to show the way to abundant life.

Now that you’ve opened up this little book, why not set a time to read each day’s devotion? It will help you understand God’s Word, apply it daily and take steps closer to Jesus.

Warm regards,

Phil Edwards
Chief Executive Officer
