Lessons from the encounters that people had with Jesus
When the disciples tried to stop people from bringing their babies to Jesus, he told them to let the children come to him! Jesus used that moment to remind them that the kingdom of heaven belongs those who come to God like children. We want our children to remember that we’re as dependent on God as a baby is on it’s mother!
The people of Jericho never imagined that Jesus would choose to hang out with someone like Zacchaeus. Jesus loves everyone and came so that all of us can know God. Because of Jesus, Zacchaeus went from being a selfish cheat to being a generous friend of Jesus!
Jesus encountered a woman at Jacob’s well. Her soul was thirsty and she had tried to quench that thirst with other things. Just as our bodies need water to sustain it, we all have a thirst that can only be satisfied by the Spirit of God!
Nicodemus came to find Jesus at night, and Jesus says a very surprising thing to him. Nicodemus is taken aback that he needs to be born again to see the kingdom of God! This lesson helps to explain why we need to be born again and what that means.
