Faith is often seen as distant from life yet Jesus came to give us life in its fullness (John 10:10). Faith itself is a gift of life and so it is that as we have faith in the Author of life, we begin to discover more of life and to life.
Have you ever asked yourself if is there more to life than what you have experienced?
Beyond your deep longings, hopes and dreams; beyond your deep suffering, pain and struggles; beyond your deep shortcomings, sin, guilt and regrets; beyond your deep emptiness, disappointments and brokenness there still remains life in its abundance, even for you.
That is why Jesus came; why he died. God listens to our prayers; God gave us God’s Word in the form of Scripture so that we can listen to God; and God gave us the Holy Spirit to be our comforter and guide. There is so much more to life than what you have experienced life to be over the years.
Pray for those who are doing Alpha – that they may experience more of Jesus’ love and God’s grace so that they may have more of life.
You may also want to be part of the journey. February 2015 is coming soon. You too may be part of this life changing journey of asking questions of life that make us reflect on our faith.
