In the secular world, to be “Living The Good Life” is often associated with having a lot of luxuries, but in the spiritual realm, to be “Living The Good Life” is to walk in spirit and truth. Jesus taught us to be servants and Heaven’s economy teaches us that if we want to receive anything; we first have to give. In this series, “Living The Good Life,” your perception of what the “Good Life” is will be altered and if you accept and apply the truths of these lessons; you will find yourself “Living The Good Life.”

Living the Good Life, Part 1

John 1:4-5

When we say someone is living the good life, we generally mean they have an abundance of resources. However, Jesus came to teach us otherwise. In John's gospel, life is equal to light and light is equal to Jesus; if you don't have Him, you don't have life! [ read more...]

Living the Good Life, Part 2

John 10:10-10

Although Nicodemus was a 'master of Israel,' he didn't understand the salvation equation. He was deeply confused, because Jesus said that we must be "born again," which makes no sense physically. Thankfully, Jesus defines the new birth as being born of the water and of the spirit. That's why if you're only born once, you have to die twice, but if you're born twice, you only have to die once.

Living the Good Life, Part 3

John 10:10-10

A relationship with God that has no means of balance is just as good as not having a relationship with Him in the first place. As Christians, we must stand on our rock, Jesus Christ, to be effective in our walk with Him. If we don't do things His way, we don't please Him. [ read more...]

Living the Good Life, Part 4

John 3:16-16

A lot of Christians are exactly like the people who waited at the pool of Bethesda; always waiting for the 'ideal' moment to change. They watch others be blessed, saved, and healed, but they still lay around waiting for some help. Fortunately, even amongst their multitude of excuses, Jesus is still standing in front of the pool saying, "wilt thou be made whole?" [ read more...]

Living the Good Life, Part 5

John 8:3-11

The law of God was given to reveal sin and we must be convinced by it before we can be cleansed by God's grace. Law and grace do not compete with each other; they complement each other. Nobody was ever saved by keeping the law, but nobody was ever saved by grace who wasn't first indicted by the law. There must be conviction before there can be conversion. [ read more...]

Living the Good Life, Part 6

John 11:3-32

God is not frightened or perplexed by our situations. He knows exactly what He's 'doing,' and what He's 'allowing.' Just like we enjoy showing off a new car, toy, or our children's talents, God enjoys proving us to the devil and to the world in life's ordinary circumstances. When we can't see what God's doing, we have to hold onto His promise. [ read more...]

Insecure people are always worrying about how they appear to others; they fear exposure of their weaknesses and hide beneath layers of protective pride. The more insecure you are, the more you will want people to serve you. But when you base your identity on your relationship with God, that allows you to serve others best. [ read more...]

Living the Good Life, Part 9

John 20:26-29

The human imagination is an incredible faculty. With it we can make printed pages come alive as we create mental images of people, places, and events that we have never seen. Unfortunately, our imagination does serve us well, but is severely limited. So many time, even with scripture, we have such a 'sanitized' mental image of scene that we rob ourselves of much of the impact of the actual event. The most obvious example would be the crucifixion of our Savior. [ read more...]

Image for series Getting To Know Him

Getting To Know Him

The most important commandment God gave us is to love Him with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength.

No matter what kind of decision you are making there is always one factor to consider: the human will! If you truly set your heart to deciding to join in this fast then there is nothing that can detour you.
