God’s desire for everyone is to live “life in abundance” (John 10:10).  Christ came to set us free; it was costly to Him, free to us!


The vision for Life Ministries Today is for every man, woman and child to understand and experience this life—resting in His presence, His promises, His power and His provision—free, surrendered, victorious!

What is “Life in Abundance?”

“Life in Abundance” is not the ABSENCE of…
  • pain
  • trials
  • failure
  • sickness
  • suffering
  • hardships
but rather, in Christ, enjoying peace and joy in the midst of…
  • pain
  • trials
  • failure
  • sickness
  • suffering
  • hardships


The Lord God has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary…

—Isaiah 50:4

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.

—Matthew 11:28–30

All of our problems can be traced directly
to a lack of surrender.

Jeanne Marie Bouvier de la Motte Guyon

We can do as little towards the work
as towards creating the world,
except as God works in us to will and to do.
God only asks of us to yield, to consent, to wait upon Him,
and He will do it all.

Andrew Murray
