The question facing the church today

“Jesus came to respond to the universal human need to know ‘how to live well.’ He came to show us how through reliance on him we can best live in the universe as it really is. That is why he said: “I am come that they may have life, and have it abundantly” His supremacy lies in the greatness of the life he gives us. Putting Jesus Christ into a worldwide competition with all known alternatives is the only way we can give our faith a chance to prove his power over the whole of life”.—Dallas Willard, Hearing God, A Life More Than Guidance
