Jesus encounters us in our self-reliance...
You want to be in control of your life
You rely on your own efforts // your own strengths // your own abilities
You are ashamed of your past // you worry about your present // you fear for your future
And when your efforts fail you // when your strength is not enough // when your world crashes down around you and all hope seems lost
He encounters you // He rescues you // He alone sets you free
I thought I was good enough. Then I met Jesus. And everything changed
