Close Encounters – Summer Message Series at Bridge Church

We’ll begin a new message series this Sunday at Bridge Church. Close Encounters: Conversations that Bring Transformation. We’ll be looking at Jesus’ one on one interactions with people in the Gospel’s. The Big Idea will be that close encounters with Christ bring life transformation. The secondary idea is that we can be catalyst for life transformation as we bring people into a close encounter with Christ. Some of the questions will be asking: How did Jesus deal with shameful sinners, the wealthy fringe, those with major health issues, the religious zealot, the sinful fridge, people with rough edges, those who had doubt, the political idealogue. These are the people that we are walking past and relating to everyday. What can we say to lead them to see the light of the Glory of God in Christ? Let’s take some lessons from the Master. Should be a lot of fun.

  1. I look forward to this series. I have chosen to call the shameful sinners people who live in the shadows, people who have become rejects of society and live in the shadows of society. We know they are there and we see them, but we don’t really see them. We may never know their names or we may be trying to forget that they are kin to us. What they really need is the Light. If we are the light of the world, it is our privilege to shine into dark places and bring people out of the shadows into the Light who alone purifies and transforms.
