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.
