The Sustainable Life - Pt. 1
by Derrick Jackson on December 10th, 2010

The Life that is sustainable results in personal and national freedom spiritually, emotionally, behaviorally, economically, financially, socially, and relationally. This continued freedom is sustained by the natural results of consistent and mass application of the Scriptures to daily living.

The life that is not sustainable leads to personal and national enslavement spiritually,
emotionally, behaviorally, economically, financially, socially, and relationally.

In simple terms, The Sustainable Life is a life that glorifies God and positions future generations to be their best in God.

Who I Am and What I Do – can that be sustained throughout the rest of my life and in the lives of those coming after me?

The idea of Sustainability within the context of human life requires a discourse about ourselves as human beings – who we are – more so than about life itself. The lives we live are the sum total of our decisions – how we act towards and respond to God, ourselves, others, and our environment.

The Life of Jesus Christ is our Example for Living “A Sustainable Life”

Jesus Christ, the God-Man, exemplified GOD'S LOVE, AGAPE, during His earthly ministry. The Scriptures recount His many acts of uncoditional, unselfish love towards humanity.

The Life of Jesus Christ revealed the following:

WE MUST POSSESS AND EXPRESS THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST

= "A Life Without the Revelation of God’s Relationship to Humanity is not Sustainable” (God’s Relationship with Humanity)

= “A Life Without the Acceptance of God’s Love is not Sustainable” (Our Relationship with God
)

= “A Life Without a Committed Relationship to another person is not Sustainable” (Our Relationship with Each Other)

WE MUST BE TEACHABLE

= Our lives are sustainable when we allow God and God-given persons to GUIDE the discovery process of our UNIQUE IDENTITY – “teachable “

= Jesus, through the Word of God, desires to teach us HOW to live and be sustained in Him ( Jesus Christ to humanity -> "Imitate my life style" )
