Jesus says in John 10:10, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” There is so much more available to us than the forgiveness of sins and the assurance of heaven. Before the foundation of the world, God prepared good works for us to do. (Eph. 2:10) There is something unique, something beautiful, some crucial role that each of us plays in the creation, for the benefit of all. It’s God’s unique fingerprint on us. It’s our God-given glory. It’s our “authentic swing” as Bagger Vance calls it. To be sure, we are whole and holy in Christ when we come to faith. It is not that we’ve lost “life to the full”, it is that it is just covered up by all the Enemy’s lies, the wounds we’ve taken, and the agreements we’ve made with all of those experiences about who God is and who we are. But, as we shed that junk, the life that’s been concealed starts to shine. We start living fully alive, fully present, unhindered, unfettered, living the way God created us to be. It’s freedom…It’s exciting. It’s passionate. It’s contagious. It impacts the world around us for good. This podcast is designed to help us live into this reality. I have learned a bit, usually the hard way, about what is involved in living "life to the full". Of course, I don't do it near perfectly, nor as often as I desire, but I am finding a bit more of it year-to-year. I don't want to stop. I'm honored to bring you right into my own quest, wresting with God’s truth, shedding my stuff, sharing some personal lessons learned, and some great insights from some very wise guests along the way. My hope is that it strikes a chord with your own quest, and together, we can become more fully alive.
