We often think that what we have done wrong in our past, whether it be sins too great to let go, or massive failures, have somehow kept us out of the presence of God. His holiness being such that He would not allow us to touch him with our filthy hands. It is quite the contrary with Jesus. Our sins are an invitation to experience His presence, a catalyst to open our heart to touch His heart. In part 3 of our series Encounters, Martial shares about the woman with the alabaster box barging in on a dinner party amongst religious elites. The contrast is staggering, but we all have an inner pharisee in us so Where do you find yourself at the dinner party?
We continue our series "encounters" with the woman at the well. It is easy to encounter Jesus in a very quiet place, but what if Jesus wants to be with us in the everyday life in the most irreligious places of our lives? This is exactly what the Samaritan woman found out. Melissa Capps brings us some fantastic points about meeting Jesus in the most unusual and most unlikely places in our lives. Enjoy.
We are kicking off 2017 with a brand new series called #Encounters. Looking at Jesus with people in the Gospel narrative tells us about His heart for our humanity and our struggles. We begin with the woman crippled for 18 years. For this woman, life looks more like feet shuffling the dirt rather than an upright walk with confidence. For her, she goes through life unnoticed and mislabeled until the Prince of Life calls out to her. What can one do when the weight of emotional and spiritual depression causes us to look down rather than into His eyes? The hope is always found in our restored identity.
