Here in chapter three of The Four Priorities series, Dr.Tolson explores the meaning of life.  He begins the video by sharing some answers from several individuals who were asked by Time Magazine “what’s the meaning of life?” which leads him into a discussion of  Ecclesiastes 1 and 2 where Solomon laments what he feels is the futility of life. Solomon, a wise and powerful king, tries all these ways to find meaning through earthly pursuits but these attempts ultimately fail him.  In terms of a Christian life this futility that Solomon feels is due to him looking for fulfillment in everything but Christ. Dr.Tolson goes on to explain how thoughts determine your actions and that is why you must work on taking control of your thoughts so that Christ can effectively reproduce himself in you. This way you can find meaning in life and continue the process of a Christian life with more success.

In this installment of Dr. John Tolson’s Four Priorities video series he discusses how even though you accept Jesus into your life you sometimes still find it hard break harmful cycles and at times you feel like you take one step forward and two steps back.  For this reason many people feel as though that because Jesus did his part in their lives but they haven’t done there’s that Jesus walks away from them. Here Dr.Tolson employs Lane Adam’s “Beachhead” illustration to explain once Jesus has entered a place in your life that place is secure.  The Beachhead illustration helps you see how the Christian life is a process of growth that  takes time and patience, not just with others but yourself as well.

This video is the first in a series in which Dr. John Tolson, co-author of The Four Priorities workbook, takes you through each book  giving further explanation of its content and meaning. Here Dr.Tolson discusses the uniqueness of Jesus and how Christianity is not so much a religion as it is a relationship with Jesus.
