What Does God Say About an Alive and Active Life?

God wants you to have an alive and active life of purpose. That’s His original design.

God’s Word is alive and active. (Heb. 4:12) In Scripture are the tools, resources, and action steps you need. The principles are current, relevant, and practical.

You want an alive and active life. So, partner with God and His Word for direction, encouragement, and power.

Why Is Scripture So Important In Your Life?

Your time and energy are in great demand. Plus, you may be disappointed over losses, struggling to focus, feeling off-balance, or needing a sense of direction. Perhaps you feel alone. Holding everything together has become a drain you never imagined. You need help.

Jesus is The Living Word. Scripture is God’s written Word – like “Jesus on paper.” So, when you take Scripture into your life by faith, you take God’s life off the pages into your soul. It gives you power in several ways. First, knowing how to use God’s Word helps you manage your realities, responsibilities, and relationships. Second, Jesus said that everything will pass away – but His words will never pass away. (Mt.24:35; Mk.13:31; Lk.21:33)

That’s why Scripture is so important in your life. And – it works!

Alive and Active Life Wants to Help.

You can become all God created you to be and accomplish all He has in mind for your life – if you choose an Alive and Active Life. You can have wisdom, quality character, and a close, daily relationship with Jesus. Why not live inside HOPE by learning how to use God’s Word?
