Speaker: Paul Kaak

Series: Living the Good Life

Summary: The GodLife, it turns out, is the GOODLife.  What we have and what we are promised is almost unbelievable it is so great!  Our calling – grounded in the goodness and greatness of God – brings us into the flow of the very life of God himself and provides us with a very real freedom from the corrupt system of this world.  The key is for us to co-operate with these promises by activating the GodLife qualities that make this life real.  These qualities are not the goal, but the means to living a productive faith that makes manifest the mystery of salvation.  They anchor us to eternal life which begins in the here-and-now and continues into the future God is preparing for us.
