More Than This

Is there more to life than pursuing success in your studies, career, sports, music, work and so on? Where does God fit in all of your life pursuits? I had an interesting experience about 20 years ago when I was in the early stages of my career as an accountant. My heart and soul were focused on succeeding and I “burnt the candle” of striving at both ends. Out of the blue, God asked me a question in my heart “Do you love me more than this”? This was similar to the questions that Jesus asked Peter shortly after His resurrection (John 21:15).

This month, we’ll be going through the teaching series, “More Than This”. We’ll be looking at: the choice and cost of following Jesus; the illusion of success; the traps of life; living in our own strength; and the spiritual world. It promises be an interesting “soul searching” series that will attempt to give us a true perspective of life from Jesus’ perspective.

Have a great month ahead.

Seeing through the eyes of Jesus

At one of our Sunday meetings, we looked at the story of Jesus and the woman at the well from the book of John 4. The bible doesn’t tell us her name, but in this story we see that God looks at everyone through the eyes of compassion, no matter where they are in their life. He is always trying to get us on track with God’s plan for us. In this current time, that plan starts with being born-again (John 3:3) and then trusting in Jesus to lead us in this life, till we meet him face to face in the life after.
