Searching for the Good Life
We all want “the good life,” and we spend our days grasping for it in various ways, looking for validation in accomplishments, vying for security through financial stability, seeking our worth through professional success. But, Jesus says that he is the way, the truth, and the life—and only by trusting in him can we truly find abundant life.
In Even Better Than Eden: Nine Ways the Bible’s Story Changes Everything about Your Story, author Nancy Guthrie says:
Whether or you know it or not, the story found in the sixty-six books of the Bible shapes the world you live in, who you are, and what you want. That’s why you and I need to know this story. It is where we find the answers to our questions about what really matters now and into eternity. This story has the power to change everything about our stories.
