4th Sunday of Easter - A


That They Might Have Life

“I come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”

With Jesus, we have salvation (“Whoever enters through me will be saved”).  And Jesus leads us to pasture. [1]

Thus, the crucified and risen Christ gives those who follow Him abundant life.

The questions are, “Why do I still allow myself to be led by others?” and “Will I help others to recognize the gift of abundant life that only Jesus Christ gives us?”
