Do you experience the presence of God in your life? Do you feel his nearness in the Holy Spirit? Do you sense his voice when you’re still and needing wisdom and direction? Do you know his comfort, his leading, his influence in your circumstances? Do you see evidence of his power in your ability to speak, think, and act differently? Do these statements sound foreign or familiar to your life experience?
God makes an amazing promise in Ephesians 3:12 when Paul tells us, “In Jesus and through faith in him we can approach God with freedom and confidence.” In Jesus, God is giving back to us the relationship we lost in the Garden of Eden. In Jesus we can experience God up close and personally.
If you made a New Years resolution to improve your spiritual life or to be more disciplined, then you’re about to get a boost. This Sunday I begin an eight week series called Experiencing God. It’s all about how to experience Jesus more personally and more powerfully. If you’ll commit to walking with me for this series, I believe God will dramatically change your life. But don’t just come for yourself; invite a friend to come with you–share the blessing with someone else.
