John: Encounters with Jesus
The Aroma of Love- Sunday Livestream 03-22-20
We are the Church.
The church is not the building but the people in it.
"The church community is where we learn to love God and others, where we are strengthened and transformed by truth from the word. Where we are taught to pray, to worship, to serve, where we can be most certain that we are investing our time and abilities for eternity. Where we can grow in our roles as friends, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, fathers and mothers. The church is earth's single best place, God's specially designed place to start over, to grow, to change, for the glory of God."
Even in this uncertain time we remain confident of this: The Lord is merciful and working in the unseen. Just because we cannot "gather" in a building for church, it does not mean that the church has shut down. Now, Church, it is our time to shine hope to those in need. To love one another and spread the Joy of the Lord regardless of our circumstance.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to meet God face-to-face? What would He say to you? What would His body language communicate? The Gospel written by John presents encounters Jesus had with human beings. Real people like you and me trying to make sense of this life and the next. In this Series we will discover, through the person of Jesus, the God who said “ .... come all who thirst and drink of me and I will give you rest.”
