They Met Jesus

By Kurt Selles

February 29, 2020

Journey with us during this month of March as we consider people’s lives that were changed when “They Met Jesus.”

When did you first encounter Jesus? Maybe you grew up in a home where you’ve known Jesus for as long as you can remember. Or maybe you had a spiritual turning point in life, and you can see how your relationship with Christ made a difference. Or perhaps you’re getting to know Jesus again after drifting apart for a while.

The Bible books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John tell us about Jesus’ three-year teaching and healing ministry. He taught with all kinds of illustrations and parables, healed the sick, cast out demons, gathered a group of followers, and much, much more. In those few years, many people encountered Jesus and were transformed by meeting him. Eventually, they also grew to realize that he is the Son of God and the Savior of the world!

What can those people’s stories teach us about our own encounter with Jesus today? We’ll meet many of those people this month and consider what it meant for them to meet Jesus face to face.

This month’s author, Rebecca Jordan Heys, serves as a pastor in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She and her husband, Kyle, are the parents of two children.

As you read the Today devotionals this month, may you be refreshed, refocused, and renewed in God’s Word!
