Encounters with God

Encounters with God

God reveals Himself in many ways to and through the Old Testament prophets. He speaks directly to them, He gives them visions, He even has some of them live out His message. As a result of this, the prophets give us access to God’s character, and catch us up in His great purposes – we encounter Him.

Tamsyn Radmall from Home For Good showed us how we can show the power of God’s transforming love, as seen in Ezekiel 47, to care-experienced children.

(Unfortunately only the ending of Tamsyn’s opening story, about her sister and brother-in-law sneaking food into a posh hotel during their honeymoon as the meals in the hotel restaurant were prohibitively expensive, is recorded here. You can see the full story on YouTube.)

Zechariah 3 reveals God as a righteous judge who loves to clothe his people in righteousness. Having been clothed by God, we find that he has restored us to the glorious role that we were made for.

Stephen teaches from Joel 2: 1–27 on how God is a God of restoration; gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and abounding in love.

Following the UK’s general election, Luke showed us the different views Christians can have on being involved in politics, and the way God shows all of us to relate to rulers.

The prophet Jeremiah suffered so much because of his obedience to God that he felt like God had deceived him. Luke looks at how Jeremiah’s response is still a model for bringing our pain to God and encountering His faithfulness. (The song Luke refers to at the end is “Come As You Are” by Crowder.)
