Everyone wants life — happy, exciting, challenging life here and now, and the assurance that such abundant life will continue even beyond this physical existence.
How to have this kind of life was on the mind of the man who came and asked Jesus Christ, “Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?” (Matt. 19:16).
Jesus’ stated purpose for being on earth was that mankind “might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). He answered: “Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments” (Matt. 19:17).
Here Christ revealed the way to the happy, fulfilling life everyone desires, the way that will actually produce every good result man could want: the way of obeying God’s commandments.
