Satan is a notorious thief.

John 10:10 "The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness."

Satan is a notorious thief. His sole desire is to rob the soul of God's presence. If he fails at that, he will work hard to rob the soul of God's peace and joy. If that doesn't work, he will work to destroy the soul's fruitfulness and effectiveness as a witness for Christ. Satan will never stop doing his best to undermine the influence of God on one's soul and living. His sole passion is to steal, kill and destroy from the soul God's presence and influence.

On the other hand, Jesus came to give life at its best. Jesus' sole passion is the good of the soul. He came to set the soul free from Satan's hold on it. He came to free the soul from its sinful past and sure judgment of God. He came to give life, not take it away.

Not only that, Jesus came to give us life in all its fullness. He doesn't want to just give us enough life to get by; He wants to give us the very best that life is. There is so much more to life in Christ than we can even imagine. No matter how much we indulge ourselves in His life, there is so much more He wants to give to us. And this life in Christ we enjoy now is but a small sampling of what life will be like in heaven. For the godly, the best is yet to come.
