The good life is to embrace ALL teachings of Jesus

Good Life to me relates to what Jesus said in John 10:10 “I have come that my followers may have abundant life.” 

I think the key to experiencing that is to embrace all the teachings of Jesus, including the challenging ones like Luke 14:33. 

My understanding is that surrendering all we are and all we have to God is not about “losing” – as it seems – but about gaining true freedom (John 8:31-32&36), true happiness (John 13:17), true peace (John 14:27), and true love (John 13:35).  As some translations put John 10:10 – “Life to the full.”
