For every well-intentioned soul who has worked hard only to fail at some new angle on spirituality, there is reason--your inner power to change yourself is unsustainable. That kind of power doesn't come from within, it comes from without. Author David Drury reveals this to be the story of humanity in Scriptures: lasting change must be nothing short of an act of God. Focusing on the lives of three characters from John's gospel, Drury reveals how Jesus transforms lives mired in fear, powerlessness, and guilt. The common denominator for their transformation, and ours, always begins with being in the presence of the great transformer, Jesus.
There are so many things we encounter in life that draw our attention away from Jesus. Fear, anxiety, guilt, powerlessness, and grief, just to name a few. But Jesus changes all of those things. When we get overwhelmed by lifes messes, we need to look at the transforming power Jesus offers through his life and Holy Spirit. The Word of God provides an encounter with the One who can transform struggles into a source of hope. Author David Drury shows us the beauty of the gospel of John through the stories of those who encountered Jesus and were dramatically changed by his presence. Join Drury as he takes you on a journey through the life of Jesus seen by the eyes of those who needed him most.
