This series will look into three encounters with Jesus from the Gospels. Chances are, most of us can relate to these encounters. In each of these encounters we see the light of Jesus shine in dark moments. His light comes to the heart of our brokenness and uncertainty. Jesus sees it all. He sees the depths of our heart, yet He loves us and has a future for us.
Doubt can lead to a deeper faith. When we doubt, God's response is not wrath but patience; far from punishing His doubting followers, God honors those who seek after Him with earnest questions and doubt.
Some days life is good, other days it is hard...either way we need one thing to help us, enoucrage us, and motivate us. We need a word from Jesus. As we look at words Jesus said to different people that gave them strength and hope or provided a challenge, we pray we will also hear Jesus speak into our lives.
We find ourselves in a difficult time with all sorts of twists and turns and changes. That also describes the life of Joseph in Genesis 37-50. We will use his life story and his close relationship with God to encourage us as we seek to survive and thrive for Jesus during these different times.
This 2-part series will look into the life of Job who had everything, lost everything, then gained more than he could ever imagine. He found the good life through his struggles. Sometimes we need to lose control of our life to experience what Jesus wants to provide. This series will conclude with a challenge to move "Beyond ME" and be "all in" for Jesus.
