Abundant Life – Currently Available for All

spring summer 2015 cover“I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly,” said the Christ (John 10:10). “All those other things – that big bank account, that prestige you seek, that power you hope to gain – those are all thieves and robbers,” he said. “Only I can give you abundant life.”
