You’re invited. God’s database is the only download you need to experience God’s remarkable offering of life.

It may be a stretch to think of the Bible as a database but it does contain everything needed to not only survive life but also to find it.

John 10:10-the enemy’s threats (stealing, killing and destroying) are a clever attempt to persuade us that the point of life has nothing to do with God. On the other hand, Jesus offers an invitation that if accepted results in a definition of life not found in any of our dictionaries. It’s so amazing that any attempt to define it would be irrational. Our most advanced computers would not be able to download the complete definition.

In John 14:6, Jesus invites us to meet his dad. He wants to introduce him to us. God has both challenging expectations and peaceful rest for those burnt out on religion or who are worn out from trying to keep the right spiritual formulas. When you throw in John 17:3 you realize this database (aka the Bible) is what introduces us to and grows our relationship with the God who began the whole thing. Let that sink in!

This is the invitation that defines the kind of life God is offering everyone.

What are some of the thieves and destroyers of this life that satan has used in your life? Think of 2 Corinthians 10:5 and write down some of those inadequate philosophies, religious boxes that can’t hold the truth and deceptive fantasies. Get with someone and discuss what it means to take the enemies lies captive.
