More to Life

There’s gotta be more to life than this”.  This is usually the complaint when someone is frustrated with routine or rat race, or perhaps heartache and loss.  Although, according to recording artist Stacie Orrico in her song by that title, it can also be an ache in the middle of success…“I've got it all, but I feel so deprived. I go up, I come down and I'm emptier inside…There’s gotta be more to life than chasing down every temporary high to satisfy me”.  Absolutely! Here’s the Good News.  The MORE in life we long for is found in a relationship with the One who came to give it.  Jesus said, “I have come that you may have life and life overflowing (abundant) John 10:10.   Christians around the world traditionally use the 40 days before Easter as a time of reflection, repentance and recommitment (Lent).  It has good purpose.  But, if the process doesn’t lead us to the Person, we miss the point.  Abundant Life isn’t the sum of having enough good things, a continual quest for the next thing or an spring-time pursuit of a religious thing.  The MORE to life has a name…Jesus.  He is the point and the overflow! Join us as we journey 40 Days to the Cross starting March 6th.  Each week won’t just be a preparation but a participation with the Life Giver Himself…the One who is the Way, the Truth and the LIFE.  Through the writings of the Apostle John we will be invited toward the MORE and welcomed into the LIFE.  By the way, this would be a great journey to share with a friend!
