Encounter

Get to know Jesus and He will transform your mindset, if you will let Him.

Not only will He open the door to a mind-blowing eternity, you will see this world through the eyes of your Creator. You will also be able to bring lasting hope to anyone who will listen to you.

But we don’t just encounter Jesus once when we come to see and love Him for the first time. Every single day living and following Him is intended to be an encounter. And not just any old encounter – like you might have with the postman or the Amazon delivery driver. Encountering Jesus every single day is supposed to be like this colossal image, above!

On one occasion at the time shortly after Jesus was crucified – when the news about Him was swirling everywhere – two local Israeli men were travelling by foot to a place called Emmaus. As they were walking and talking and discussing (discipleship), a third man drew alongside them and joined in with the conversation.

After some time, the two disciples, (who were very slow to understand and accept what had just happened at Calvary), had their eyes opened – they received, as it were, spiritual sight (check the account of Nicodemus meeting Jesus in John chapter 3).

The Bible says that it wasJesus, the resurrected Lord of Glory, Who had opened the eyes of their hearts and caused them to burn!

They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while He talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”

Luke 24:32

The more we encounter Jesus, just like this, the more we shall learn of God, and then we will even be willing to die for Him.
