God is not only the author of life and how life comes to be. He also makes a way that we may have life to the fullest, making not just the reality but the quality of our life different. God doesn't just want us to exist. He wants us to thrive.
The word fullness in John 10:10 means superabundant or superior; by implication, excessive. If I had to guess, this isn't what we'd classify our life as. We don't look around and think, look at my "superabundant" life. But that's what Jesus came to this earth to give us. And it's ours to have. We have to look to him to define what that exactly means.
Leading us to our third and final point - eternal life. This is how God defined life. It's not something that begins when we die. It's something we enter into when we stop living in denial of what God has to say and start agreeing with him.
