The Good Life Has Begun

On Sunday I officially started The Good Life series. I am excited about it.

In John 20:30–31, John says that he wrote his gospel so that the readers might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and that by believing they might have life in his name. In others words, the purpose of John is to bring life. And to John, life is not just life--it's eternal life, life with God, life in the Spirit. In other words, it's the good life.

In the series, we will be looking at the Gospel of John and contrasting Jesus' message of the good life with suburbia's message of the good life. To John, living the good life is about "staying faithful to Christ, even when it costs you something." So, we are going to look at what "staying faithful to Christ" means in the suburbs. It's going to be all about living counter-culturally.

You can hear the first message here.
