Living a Life of Purpose and Meaning
Have you ever felt professionally successful but personally unfulfilled? Material possessions, though pleasurable, cannot change or improve the essence of who you are. As author Kenneth Rupert explains in The Dynamics of Abundant Life: Living a Life of Purpose and Meaning, if you want to make an impact and leave a legacy, you have to move beyond the material and discover your core essence. This study seeks to help you draw closer to God through an understanding of the dynamics of the abundant life Jesus Christ came to give us. It explores in detail the dichotomy between having abundance in life and having an abundance of life and describes the nine aspects of abundance—attitude, balance, ultimatums, nurturing, direction, action, navigation, connectedness, and empathy. In each chapter, Rupert provides practical steps designed to build your relationship with God and encourage a life of service and giving. Explaining the importance of exercising spiritual disciplines and presenting Christ to a hurting and dying world, The Dynamics of Abundant Life weaves personal stories with commentary in order to illustrate how God uses our experiences to draw us closer to Him even when those experiences are painful. Ultimately, it is our desire to become more Christlike that enables us to live an abundant life.
Love and Life Beyond Self
"Don't do for me, that which I can do for myself. Do for me what I am incapable of doing for myself." This is the heart cry of someone who is struggling with life's problems. This is what God did through Jesus Christ when He set aside His glory, entered into the reality of His creation, and provided a path of reconciliation for you. This is empathy. Here, Kenneth E Rupert examines the depths of empathy to reveal why it is such a rare quality. Empathy requires you to model God's actions towards mankind by voluntarily setting aside your standing, status, or station, entering into the reality of someone who is struggling with life's problems, and creating the environment for that person's restoration. Throughout this book, you will learn how to order your life to become a person of empathy. You will be challenged to step into someone's life and offer the four actions of empathy. You will also learn how to live life beyond yourself by being a conduit for God's resources to flow through you for the benefit and growth of others.
