A 5-session journey to discover what it really means to be "saved."
For Christians, perhaps the deepest expression of what we're waiting for is found in the phrase "eternal life." But what is eter-nal life? Why do we want it? And how do we know if we have it?
In the Eternity Is Now in Session Participant's Guide, bestselling author John Ortberg takes you on a radical journey of rediscovery, dispelling the myth that eternal life is something way out in outer space that we can only hope to experience after we die. Instead, John unpacks the reality that the moment we trust Christ, we are initiated into "eternal living" with God as a here-and-now reality, one that will continue beyond our life on this earth. We can truly know God, experiencing His presence, favor, and resurrection power right here on this earth-in the details, tasks, and challenges of daily, ordinary life.
And as we begin to know God this way, we'll realize each moment of our lives is a vehicle to the eternity we've been longing for all along.
