“The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”
- Jesus (John 10:10)

Last week on 180 WITH KARL CLAUSON, a new program in the afternoons on AM1160, they were discussing how NOT to experience the overcoming Christian life.  That if you want to live in lack, depression, and an overall defeated life, just live the “HALT” way.  Want to be defeated in life?  Just live...

HUNGRY - Live life continually running on empty.

ANGRY - Forget peace and love.  Live mad.

LONELY - You don’t need anyone else bothering.  Stay isolated.

TIRED - Rest is for wimps.  Keep the pedal to the metal.

The host and guest were obviously having some fun with the listeners but the point is well made.  If we want to live the abundant life God promises we have to live life God’s way.  God’s Word teaches how to live the overcoming life.  We can’t live according to how we feel at any given moment we have to live a life of faith saturated the Word of God.
