Encountering God

 

The scriptures say to us that from the beginning God has been revealing himself to us. He is the one that takes the initiative. The writer to the Hebrews says it like this:

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being.

Hebrews 1:1-3

He has revealed himself in the hope that we will pursue Him. At Hope Community our desire is to be a place where people encounter God. We purposely chose the word “encounter” because it is a real life experiencing of God.

How does that happen? It happens in community as we worship together, listen to his word and serve others. Encountering God is life changing!
