Lesson 3

Lesson 4

Living Abundant Life

Inheriting the Kingdom of God

Jesus said all those who believe in Him have Eternal Life; but He also said not everyone who says 'Lord, Lord' will inherit the Kingdom of God. This lesson explains salvation as it pertains to Eternal life, the Kingdom of God, and Purgatory. Learn the role of holiness in all three.

Jesus also said that He came so we can have Abundant Life. This lesson explores the differences between Eternal Life and Abundant Life, how we can have Eternal Life but not a life of Abundance and how holiness is the answer.

Lesson 5

Holy Attitudes Towards God

In order to be holy, we need to have holy attitudes towards God. We say "God loves me"; but do we really know what that means? When we say we love God, what should that mean?

Lesson 6

Holy Attitudes Towards Self

God wants to make us holy. But we can block holiness if we do not have holy attitudes about our self. Feeling too bad about sin leads to weakness of faith. But to have no remorse about sin is to reject holiness. We need balance.
