A scholar, a failure, a blind man and an adulterer. These are some of the people in this guide whose lives were changed forever - when they met Jesus. Looking at their lives gives us hope as we find ourselves living in the backwash of failure or dealing with an emptiness nothing in life seems to fill. The good news is that Jesus is waiting to meet us too. This LifeGuide Bible Study in the new format features questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, as well as a "Now or later" section in each study.
