Open Church: How has Jesus transformed you?
Welcome to church! Open Church is a weekly post that aims to be a place where Christians on Hive can hang out, encourage and build up one another, and reflect the love of Christ. The church is not a building, but is made up of people who have been transformed by God’s grace.
Each week I will be putting up a new post with a new topic or theme for discussion. But feel free to come here just to fellowship and be a blessing to one another. Whatever denominational background your from, or if you’re just curious about the Christian faith, everyone is welcome.
So feel free to share a link to your favourite worship song, share a word of encouragement, a prayer request, or introduce yourself.
Today’s topic is: How has Jesus transformed you?
When the demon-possessed man in the region of the Gerasenes asked to follow Jesus;
Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” (Mark 5:19)
Our testimonies of what Jesus has done for us are powerful. Each one of us has a story, a story of how our story intersected with God’s grand story.
My life before Jesus came into my life was dull, lacked purpose, had no joy, and I was afraid to reveal to others my struggles, weaknesses and who I really was. But Jesus changed all this. You can read my entire story in the pinned post. In short, Jesus has set me free, and now I live with purpose, hope and joy. He has completely transformed me.
How about you? I would like to read about what Jesus has done in your lives too. To Him be the glory.
