A highlight from Happy Hour #407- Encounter (Mo Isom)


Had an encounter with him at some point in our lives. Some of those encounters had been mysterious like we read about where saul encountered jesus on the road to damascus and acts chapter nine and he was never the same after that. I was on the floor republic bathroom february tenth of two thousand one. And i just started falling. I was watching my tears at the floor. And i just said god helped me and i have no idea why said it or like the woman at the well that we read about in john chapter four. Who met jesus and despite what her culture might have shamed her for. Jesus offers her living water and our life was never the same. It was surprising to me. Like my vision of jesus was sort like an ancient george w bush wrapped in a toga. And i'm just like the cantor. Jesus can't be interesting to me. Like i wanna marry a woman sunday. I'm very intellectual. This can't be true. But he just drew me in or like when simon peter meets jesus and has an encounter with him while fishing and he left everything to follow him. I would kind of walk into church. Every now. And then and i would just meet and i didn't know why my soul would just weep and i'd walk out of them and i never going in there again walking a drawn and you see encounters with jesus.
