THE LIFE

"I am the. . .

truth and the life."

John 14:6

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, living life to the fullest requires one thing and one thing only. I am the life—I am the One who designed you, formed you, and breathed My Spirit into you, and I sustain you. Apart from Me, there is no life. Because I am in your heart—because you have chosen to invite Me there—I can bring you true, abundant life. That's why I came. You won't find it any other place but in Me. Celebrate life, My child!

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, You are life itself. Apart from You, I have no meaning. Without You, I am like a seed eternally dormant in the ground—never growing, never bursting forth into full bloom. But with Your life in me, I can blossom eternally. You are my life, Lord.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Where there are no roots, there is no life.
