“A thief comes only to steal and slaughter and destroy; I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”—John 10:10
Jesus came to affect every area of our life through giving back to humanity a true representation of the character of the Father. Since man’s fall came through deception over God’s character (Genesis 3:1-3), Jesus knew that man’s restoration would also come through the restoration of the truth concerning God’s character. In John 8:32 we find Jesus explaining to us, “You will know the truth [about God], and the truth will set you free.” And again when looking toward Calvary, Jesus understood this to be the primary purpose of the cross, when He stated, “But for this purpose I came to this hour. ‘Father, glorify Thy name [character]’” (John 12:27-28). And thus, if we combine Jesus’ statements in John 12 and John 10, we find that He came to this world in order that we might have the life we were made for through restoring to us a true understanding of God’s character and His great love for this world.
This month Renewed Heart Ministries is releasing a brand new series, “Life Unlimited,” for free download on our website under “Resources.” This seventeen-presentation evangelistic series is aimed at reaching our culture with the message of God’s life-changing love as seen through the unique truths of the Seventh-day Adventist movement. It is based on the premise that a correct view of God’s character of Love, through our teachings, will bring healing and direction to every area of our life. If believed and applied, the principles of God’s love will bring emotional healing, fitness and health, spiritual fulfillment, mental development, and financial freedom.
Experience Adventist truths–spanning from our prophetic interpretations all the way to the Sabbath, the State of the Dead, and even Tithing–in light of the Gospel of God’s character of Love and the abundant life Jesus came to give us. Our teachings as a church were given to us so that we might “lighten the earth with His glory” (Revelation 18:1). Come encounter them as never before. Jesus sought to meet the felt needs of the world He was endeavoring to teach on the character of the Father. May we, too, passionately share the truth of God’s character with this world in a way that they can hear. Life Unlimited!
