New Series: Wellbeing
Embracing Life to the Full
Jesus came to give us life to the full (John 10:10). It is a life that is to be characterised by His peace (Shalom / wholeness), which he freely gives to us (John 14:27). This gift is not just a nice idea or a momentary experience. Rather, it is a posture and lifestyle that is to permeate our hearts, souls, minds and bodies. Such a posture keeps life sustainable, meaningful, enjoyable and exciting, even when it is really tough. It’s all about Jesus! Therefore, our invitation is to learn how to live in the good of the life Jesus offers, making conscious ongoing decisions to keep Him at the centre.
Oasis is enjoying a year of adventure — led by God into new opportunities and challenges. The ultimate adventure is embracing the life Jesus invites us to. All other adventures flow from that.
Over the coming weeks, we’re going to be looking together at what it is to know God’s grace to the burnt out, to know rest, to renew our minds, and to learn to live spiritually, emotionally, relationally and physically healthy lives. Each week, we’ll be publishing a new blog with notes from the talk on Sunday, and discussion and application questions to help you go deeper into each theme. A key place this happens each week is through Small Groups, and if you’re not already connected to one, we’d love to link you up! We have groups that meet throughout the city on lots of different nights. Just drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you plugged in.
