By the grace of God, my life has been filled with “God encounters”—God taking me to mountain tops, leading me through the valleys and walking with me in the small moments, every step of every day.


Yes, and you can live a life filled with personal God encounters too.

Just think about the experience of the disciples. Their lives had been transformed during three years of walking with Jesus.

They were fresh from the rollercoaster of losing their Master, then getting Him back. Now He was telling them it was better for them if He left because then they would receive the Holy Spirit.

Of all the rather incredible things Jesus had said to them, this may have been one of the most difficult to believe.

How could it possibly improve their lives to have Jesus’ substitute teacher instead of Jesus Himself?
