Savoring God through literacy in His literal Word


January 11, 2015 ~ Luke 12:13-21 ~ What kind of life can a person expect when he or she becomes a Christian?  Did Jesus promise people that He would make their life run smooth and that He would provide healing every time they got sick?  Did Jesus actually promise that salvation provides "your best life now"?  Our message today from Luke 12 provides us with the answers from Scripture to these important questions.


Your Best Life Now
