What does it mean to live life – to truly live life as God intended us to live?
At some point, we all wrestle with the purpose of our life or question if we’re going in the right direction.
Jesus said he came so that we could experience life to its fullest. In John 10:10, he says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” It is by the grace of Jesus that we are able to experience the full life he talks about in John 10:10. Often we focus our lives on things of life we think will be fulfilling; but then we do not find fulfillment in them. Our role in experiencing life to its fullest is opening our lives to Jesus and creating space for him to guide us toward the full life he desires for us.
But what does it mean to experience life to its fullest?
Is it living a life that is full of activities?
Is it a life filled with constant happiness?
Is it being able to purchase things to make life more convenient?
Is it a life without worries or hardship?
Is it a life without need or want?
The concept of life in all its fullness is exciting, but it can also be confusing.
Over the next six weeks, in preparation for Easter, we’re going to explore what it means to experience life to its fullest by looking at Jesus’s life and teachings in the form of weekly challenges.

How can you incorporate Live Life into your small group?
Great question! We’re so glad you asked…
People are always looking for a good Lent study to go through with their small group. This year, we are engaging in Live Life, a 6 week journey toward Easter, exploring what Jesus meant when he said that he came so that we may have life in all its fullness (John 10:10). It will be an exciting local and global way that your group can contemplate life in all its fullness through scripture and stories. Here are some tips and tricks to help you incorporate Live Life into your small group…

So wait, what is Live Life??
By now you’ve probably heard about the new campaign, “Live Life.” Some of you may be as excited as we are about getting a better understanding of what experiencing life to its fullest could look like, but others may just need some more information before you decide to sign up.

There is an orthodox belief that goes like this:
If God is eternal.
And our movement is towards knowing Him,
Then learning about Him will be an eternal journey.
I love this idea… that we can keep growing in the knowledge of God because it is an eternal endeavor. With that said, I would like to submit something on top of this. That is:
The way in which we journey towards knowing God is in the talents He’s given us.
