A Moment with Jesus

13 March 2022
Book: John

Bible Passage: John 4:43-5:14


Jesus is not a fairy tale person. These are not just Sunday school stories. Not romantic fables. They are historical moments in which a real God met real pain so we could answer the question, “Where is God when I hurt?”

How does Jesus respond to a person in the midst of a crisis? Read the story of the nobleman’s son. How does Jesus react to brokenness, hopelessness and great desperation? Stand with Him at the pool of Bethesda. He’s not doing it just for them. He’s doing it for us — for you and me. The God who spoke still speaks. The God who came still comes. He comes into our world. He comes to do what we can’t.

God wants to have a moment with you in this moment of time. All it takes is a moment for Him to make a difference, to change your life forever. As the song goes…

You turn mourning to dancing
You give beauty for ashes
You turn shame into glory
You turn graves into gardens
You’re the only One who can
O there’s nothing better than You*

One moment, one encounter, that’s all it takes. It can be the same for you. A moment with Jesus changes everything.
