Trust in God

Posted by Brad Quiring on June 16, 2018

Dear Abundant Life Family, For believers in Jesus Christ and members of Bible-teaching churches and organizations, this last couple of years seems to have been very frustrating.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

“Skipping Church”

Posted by Brad Quiring on August 29, 2017

Hebrews 10:25 “not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching” We are a culture of convenience, of personalization and individualism. We have a million ways of customizing our lives to perfectly suit our every preference. When things are difficult, we think little...

John 10:10 - The True Abundant Life

Posted by Brad Quiring on August 11, 2017

John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” This verse is often misused.

Posted by Rod Neufeld on September 16, 2016

Success or failure?Success or Failure. Over the past few weeks I have been thinking on this topic. Honestly, I have been consumed with it. I have come to a few conclusions.

Focus on our Suffering

Posted by Brad Quiring on February 23, 2016

I copied this entry from the daily devotional put out by the North American Baptist Conference’s “40 Days to Easter” devotional. It summarizes the February 21, 2016 message on suffering so well. “Behold, the hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, for...

The Journey

Posted by Rod Neufeld on January 15, 2016

In preparing to make the journey to the Dominican Republic there have been many things going through my mind. Regardless of how much we want to focus on Christ above all things, our condition, the old nature, still has a habit of showing itself. We fret about making sure that have everything just right, we pack the right stuff, we...

Top Ten #6 Pro-Life - Promoting and Protecting Life

Posted by Brad Quiring on February 22, 2015

The Ten Commandments are not God’s way of telling how to be good to win his favour. Neither are they the key to entering heaven and having our sins forgiven. The Ten Commandments teach us about the character and glory of God. They also teach us that we have fallen short of his glory. Life and death are huge...
