A God-promised abundant life in the dirty here and now is available ONLY by truly choosing to follow Jesus. ( Romans 10:8-12 at http://diigo.com/0lk6j).
Through our free choice to follow Jesus, God completely reformats a person’s sorry state of being, depressive state of mind, and inglorious, eternal state. In Biblical not religious terms, we are born again as totally “new creations”. (2 Corinthians 5:17 at http://diigo.com/0jis0)
Blessings & peace!
