Many believers live with a gnawing sense that there must be more to the Christian life than what they're living. They stumble around with a deep sense of discontent or resignation, struggling to see how their faith is applicable, exciting, or even visible in their lives.
What if the answer is that there is more to the gospel than we imagined?
With bold honesty and fresh biblical insight, pastor and speaker Putty Putman reveals that the secret to a vibrant life of more is found not in what you do, but in who you are.
Through the Holy Spirit, we are not just forgiven, but made new. This new identity makes possible a thrilling life of impact, adventure, blessing, and true freedom--a life, like Jesus' own, that is connected to and empowered by a God who is, and does, more than we ever imagined.
