(A “Love The Lord Your God” Series)
Is there some secret to life? Why don’t I experience all the blessings God talks about in the Bible?
David tells me that,
“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” (Psalm 16:11, NKJV)
And Jesus promised,
“I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.” (John 10:10, HCSB)
So, what am I doing wrong? Come and check out this series that shows us how we come to enjoy the “abundant life!”
Join us each week as we answer the following questions:
September 2: What Is the Abundant Life Anyway?
Abundant life: It truly is Good News! It brings freedom, vision, release and favor. Jesus sets us on the path to experience daily abundance in ways we cannot and have not even begun to imagine.
September 9: What’s My Life Purpose?
The abundant life is yours because you are a new creature in Jesus! It’s a matter of accessing God’s grace and walking in His wisdom!
September 16: How Do I Get God’s Guidance in Life?
Guidance is a matter of attention. God wants to provide you with an internal GPS that navigates you through your entire day without misstep or mistake. When you are obedient, Jesus’ leadership responds in blessings.
September 23: How Does God Strengthen My Life?
The abundant life is a new and living way of life – a lifestyle that unswervingly holds fast to God and His people. God wants you to build loyal friendships that last for eternity on the basis of fellowship. Your support and help comes from these everlasting friendships.
September 30: How Do I Enjoy All of the Blessings God Has For Me?
You have to give up to go up! In Christ, it matters what you are focused on and where you are expending your energies! Life in this world will be better if it is lived by a power beyond this world, the power of the resurrected, ascended, glorified Christ.
October 7: How Do I Live Without The Burden of Guilt?
The inner life of a Christian is often a strange mixture of motivations both genuinely spiritual and completely human. It takes a supernaturally discerning agent such as the Word of God to sort these out and to expose what is of the flesh. Confession is the practical application of our position in Christ. Learn how you can experience God’s cleansing now or anytime.
October 14: How Do I Get the Power of God in My Daily Life?
Human performance is not the key to effective living but the Spirit. You must realize your inability to live on your own strength and ask God to fill you with His Spirit. Discover how you can volitionally open yourself to the Spirit’s leadership and control on a recurrent basis.
October 21: How Can I Fix My Broken Life?
Your commitment to and dependence on the Scriptures, as well as God’s ability to supply all your problem-solving solutions through His Word, make one wise with regard to salvation and life.
October 28: How Do I Hear the Voice of God?
Prayer is communicating with God in His presence. Learn how persistence in prayer can expect an answer, not because of the technique we use but because of the God we address.
November 4: How Do We Enjoy a Fruitful Life?
As Christians, we often wish we had quick formulas that would take care of our spiritual problems. The biblical material resists that kind of attitude. However, we may be encouraged in our spiritual life because when we placed our faith in Christ we gave a fatal blow to the power of the flesh. Learn how to live a life that proceeds from the Spirit.
November 11: How Do I Gain Friends and Influence Enemies?
One of the Spirit’s ministries is to produce within each believer a concern and love for other members of God’s family and His lost children. This may be received or rejected by a believer, but the Spirit’s work is a reality and is a basis for spiritual unity. Discover how you can follow Christ’s example of humility and selfless attitude, thus influencing those all around us.
November 18: How Do I Overcoming Satan’s Constant Attacks?
Christians are not to attack Satan, or advance against him; they are only to “stand” or hold the territory Christ and His body, the church, have conquered. Without God’s armor believers will be defeated by the “schemes” of the devil that have been effective for thousands of years. Discover how not only the person of the Lord can strengthen believers, but also His resources.
