Lent 2017

encounterswithchristThis year we invite you to journey with us again through Lent. Nico Marais has put together another set of special material to help you reflect and pray. Nico writes ...

In recent years I’ve become more passionate about people encountering Jesus in a real and honest way and for people to see Him for who He really is.
This devotional looks at the very different ways Jesus interacted with various characters in the Bible. Jesus’ interactions with each of these people or groups give us a great insight into who He was while on earth, how He showed His love to those around Him and how He took an individual interest into each life He encountered.
The devotions run for the 40 days of Lent, which excludes Sundays as rest days. Each week looks at a different type of interaction people had with Christ. Each day consists of a Bible reading, a short thought, a short prayer and a quote that may help to bring home the message (or at least give us some food for thought).
My hope for these devotions is that the readings and thoughts will give us some insight into our own encounters with Christ, whether it is to ask Him stuff, to worship Him, to hang out with Him, to be set straight by Him, or to listen to Him, so that we may get to know Him better and love Him more. Even more than this, I pray that these devotions will make you hunger after more encounters with Jesus, will make you search after the truth of who He is and give you the courage to ‘approach the throne of grace with confidence’ (Hebrews 4:16)
