Christianity can be summarized in one simple word: LIFE. Of course, this refers to Jesus being our life—for He is THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life. It is not that He has some life, He is life itself. Interestingly, Jesus says that He has come to give life abundant … a superlative which conveys something to the highest degree and quality. In this episode, I give several of my favorite superlatives and talk about what it means to live the superabundant, superlative life which we have in Christ Jesus our Lord.
