I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.
– Jesus Christ (The Bible, John 10:10)
There must be more to life than this?!
“What does it mean to have life? For many it means merely existing. The ability to breath air and have enough food to eat. For others it means pleasure and enjoyment. No doubt you have heard the familiar expression, “That’s the life,” referring to an accumulation of goods and pleasure. However, true life is not just being alive. Neither is it found in the pursuit of pleasure or riches. One can have all of these and be miserable inside. True life, is truly living. It is eternal life, yet it is much more than living forever. It is found only in relationship with God our Father, and Jesus Christ His only Son. It is a quality of life which brings true eternal happiness. It is not a dream or fantasy. It is not a hope held out to those who are “good enough” to make it to heaven. In fact, it is available to all, young and old, rich and poor, right now. It cannot be earned, bought, or sold. It is offered freely to those who will repent of their sins, and accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. He came that you might have this life and have it abundantly.” –Really Living Series
What is the Really Living Series?
Deep down, all of us have/had questions about the meaning of life, our purpose, the existence of God, the truth about Jesus, who He was and what He is all about. “Really Living” is a series of books written by Irish/American pastor and author, PJ Hanley written with you and your questions in mind. The design of “the books” (as we’ve come to call them) is to answer those questions. Through this series, we hope to help you find your purpose in life through a personal, relationship based, one-on-one, down to earth, and approachable program. You’ll get together weekly with a sponsor from the local church who is a normal, every-day person, just like you. Meeting up for a coffee or a cuppa tea, you’ll read a chapter together from the books, chat about it, and discuss any questions you might have. A simple, easy, no pressure, and totally casual way to discover more to life.
How do I get started?
Are you ready to begin your journey of discovering more? Simply contact someone from Banner of Love Church and say, “I’d like to go through the ‘Really Living’ series.” You’ll be glad you did. The church will get you connected with a sponsor who’ll chat with you and work out a time and place to get together and begin.
So what are you waiting for? Ring or stop in to the church to begin living a more abundant life, today.
