7/2 – Living The Good Life
The good life is the opposite of the corruption that is in the world through lust.
The good life is a gift from God. He is the only source of the good life. He has already given you all you need for life and godliness. The power that raised Jesus from the dead is in you.
The good life is what God thinks and feels. It’s not subject to the elements of this world.
Jesus’ perspective: John 16:32 – talking about being left alone in the natural, yet I am not alone bc the Father is with me.
The foundation for our trust in God has to be Jesus or we will experience broken hearts. We think many times the foundation is that we never experience hardships. Jesus and Him crucified is the only foundation or else we will be tossed to and fro in our mind, will and emotions.
How do we go from lies to the truth? He does this by adoring us.
When we look to our circumstances for the good life it’s a “He loves me, He loves me not” type of life. That is hope on a slippery slope.
