Empty Boxes

Scripture: John 10:7-10
Preached at: Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
Date: September 19, 2004
Some boys played a cruel trick on a feebleminded boy at Christmas time. They gave him a “gift” of a huge box. Excitedly, he tore off the wrapping and opened the box, only to discover it completely empty. Satan offers us his empty boxes. But Jesus likened him to the thief who comes to steal, kill, and destroy. In contrast, Jesus has come to give us life and to give it more abundantly.
