What does a conference about “best life ever” mean anyway? What does a really well-lived, healthy life look like? I look around and I don’t see many examples. I see people walking around in unhealthy bodies, depressed, angry and hopeless. Jesus speaking in John 10:10 describes that kind of life very well. He said “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” NIV (emphasis added)
What does life to the full mean for you? I believe Jesus was talking about an abundant life in every area of who we are; body, soul, mind and spirit. It means there is a hopeful way to deal with the depression that has been plaguing you. It means there is a healthy way to lose weight and live a holy lifestyle. It means there is a way to actually be freed from a tormented mind. It means everlasting eternal life.
I have asked our wonderful staff, including Carole Lewis, to share in this article about whole-person wellness for a “Best Life Ever” from their individual perspectives. Best Life Ever practices are learned behaviors that come over time with knowledge, application and faith! It’s the faith part that changes everything.
Your Best Life Ever will come as you learn to “love the Lord with all your heart, mind, soul and strength” as we are commanded in Mark 12:30.
