Category: This Is The Gospel
What is the purpose of life? This question has been asked for centuries.
The Bible gives us a clear answer: LIFE IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIP.
From the book of Genesis through the book of Revelation, the Bible shares a relational message. This message is called the Gospel (or the Good News). When a person understands the message and embraces God's offer, they not only discover the purpose of life—they discover Life itself.
