Now Watching Encounter - Part 2 - "End of Religion"

Religion is complicated. Religion is a system of rules and regulations that we must follow in order to be right with God. We think that if we believe right and behave right, then God will accept us. And many people in our generation have walked away from religion because of this. Maybe you’re one of them. But Jesus didn’t come to give us religion. He came to give us grace. In this message, we’ll look at an encounter with Jesus that shows us that he didn’t simply come to show us the way to Heaven. Jesus is the way to Heaven.

When was the last time you encountered someone who impacted your view of the world? Whether or not we are aware of it, our encounters with people have a way of shaping what and how we think. In this series, we'll be looking at some encounters Jesus had with different people, and how those interactions impacted them. And as we do, we’ll see how their encounters can impact us and our lives, too.
