Encounters with Jesus
Encounter with a Religious Man
There is more to the Christian life than being religious and ‘following the rules’. In “Encounter with a Religious Man,” Pastor Dave Gustavsen shares the story of how a religious leader had his ideas of what religion was transformed by a conversation with Jesus. Explore what it really means to be a Christian, and what gift Jesus generously offers to all of us.
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.
