The Gate - John 10

I am the gate. When I was at a Young Life Christian camp in the Rockies at the age of 18, a pastor/mentor posed a question to our group. What percentage of life are you living? In other words, if you were saying you lived life to a certain percentage, what would that percentage be? I was like, What are you talking about man? How do you live life at a certain percentage? Am I living life at 70%? 90%? Do I want to live it at 100%? The idea kind of sticks. If I ask any of you, do you want to live life to the fullest, how would you respond? Do you want every moment to be fulfilled, enjoyable, gratifying? Maybe not every single moment, but at least a high percentage of the moments we experience.
