The Abundant Life | 9 October 2017


“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” —John 4:14


“Brothers and sisters, the abundant life does not come to us packaged and ready-made. It comes through faith, hope, and charity. And it comes to those who, in spite of hardship and sorrow, understand the words of one writer who said, “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”” Joseph B. Wirthlin
