Your Life's Goal
This morning's message, from the end of John 3, was very personal. It spoke truth to us about our own life and from the scripture we were challenged about the 'statement' our life was and is making to this world. It would serve us well to take a minute to write out what we would like our life's statement to be, versus what it actually is. That message has some helps for correcting our path. We must 'Recognize our Source,' 'Realize our Status,' and 'Receive our Salvation.'

This is what He has done for you and me, give us abundant life here and eternal life there.
Do you have that life? If not, why would you wait? If you do, Jesus has given us a command and a challenge. As long as He was on earth, He was the light of the world and the purveyor of eternal life, now that He has returned to heaven, He has passed the baton on to you and me to offer, share, and give the ''Living Water of Eternal Life'' to people on earth.
One of the mistakes made today is to think that Jesus came just to make our life better here. His goal is for everyone possible to drink of this living water - and He's called us to do His work.
So, how do ...
