Many encounters in life are able to completely change the course of our lives, but everything depends on whether or not we decide to show up – when we meet the person we fall in love with; when we discover the degree we want to study; when we meet someone who can transform our company. However, the encounter that none of us can afford to miss is our encounter with God.
WHAT IS AN ENCOUNTER?
As the word itself suggests, it is when we encounter God and enjoy the rich blessings He has prepared for us – which we attain through faith. It is a time when we set aside our daily routines to be able to receive a supernatural change.
“For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved” Romans 10:10.
WHAT DO WE RECEIVE ON AN ENCOUNTER?
We allow Jesus to enter our life – Revelations 3:20
We become a child of God and enjoy all the privileges – John 1:12
Assurance that God lives inside us – 1 Corinthians 3:16
Knowledge that we are no longer alone in this world because we have an amazing friend who guides us into all truth – Jesus Christ – John 16:13
A revelation of the cross
According to John 17:3, the most important thing is to know Christ. When we have a supernatural encounter, we understand the crucifixion and are able to leave our past at the cross of Calvary.
