What is The Good Life

18 07 2010

 What is the “good life,” really? God does not promise that you will gain a big bank account or will never suffer problems. Paul wrote, “all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12). Life as a true follower of Christ is not easy. But Scripture shows how you can be happy and fulfilled now. You can have a fulfilling, faithful and enjoyable marriage. You can have a happy and enriching family life. You can even have enjoyable, satisfying work. How? 

     The key is in recognizing that the “good life” is not measured by how many cars we have, television channels we can access, or square feet of house we can own. It is not measured by fast Internet access or fancy cell phone. It is not based on credit cards or bank accounts. Rather, it comes from a close, personal, and obedient relationship with God. Jesus Christ wants you to have an abundant life now! He said, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Do you have a relationship with Jesus Christ that goes beyond mere words and emotional sentiment? Have you committed to whole-hearted obedience? Have you repented of your sins and decided to commit your life to God? The good life is possible—and these choices are where it starts.
