Encounter with a Hopeless Man

John 5:1-15

How can we find hope in a world that has sickness, disappointment, and brokenness? In “Encounter with a Hopeless Man,” Pastor Dave Gustavsen shares the story of a paralytic man, who after 38 years, had probably given up hope that healing would ever come. This story demonstrates how Jesus offers hope and healing in the midst of our brokenness.

Series Information

How does real change happen? Is it education, self-help, or getting socially “woke”? None of the above. When Jesus walked this earth, he changed lives by encountering people one at a time. He engaged them in conversation, saw their deepest needs, and invited them to the better way of walking in his kingdom. This fall, we’ll look at six encounters with Jesus from John’s Gospel. And if we’re listening, we’ll never be the same. We’ll hear his voice. We’ll experience his love. And we’ll become passionate about helping others encounter Jesus for themselves.
