How do you balance the chaos of life?
Day after day we struggle against grief, anxiety, fear, stress, and personal sin. As the world threatens to overwhelm us, we try to carry our burdens until the weight is simply too heavy to bear.
Throughout the Bible, we discover real people with familiar struggles coming face-to-face with Jesus.
This three-week course, Encounters with Jesus, offers a window into three people’s moments with the Savior. They looked for answers, healing, and miracles, but Jesus offered much more—eternal life and hope in Him.
In week one, listen in on Nicodemus’s late-night conversation with Jesus. This religious teacher recognized Jesus’s spiritual authority and his curiosity drove him to seek answers. Experience his astonishment at the deeper truth that Jesus reveals.
In week two, meet the Samaritan women at the well, ashamed of her sin and cast out of society. With perceptive questions, Jesus gently engages her in a life-changing conversation. Transformed, she cannot help but share the good news.
In week three, witness the persistent faith of a royal official begging Jesus for a miracle. Experience Jesus’s compassion for this desperate father and His call to faith without sight.
These conversations from John chapters three and four reveal that the key to facing real problems begins with knowing the real Jesus.
As you encounter the Savior of the world in His Word, will you ask Him to transform you, too?
