Week 1: Desiring Jesus
Encountering Jesus starts with a desire. What drives you to someone or something begins with strong feelings of passion and pursuit. A heart that truly desires Jesus will lead to life-changing encounters with Him. Let’s commit this week to seeking and rediscovering a desire for Jesus.
Day 1 – Who He is
Jacob’s well was there; and Jesus, tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well about noontime. Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.” He was alone at the time because his disciples had gone into the village to buy some food. The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?” Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.” John 4:6-10
1. Ask God for a fresh understanding of who He is and His unconditional love for you.
2. Declare that He is all that you want and need.
3. List down 3 areas that you want to see God move in your life. Pray that God will bring about transformation in these areas during these 21 days.
Dear Lord, thank You for Your great love and compassion. Assure me that You always desire to draw near to me, regardless of my doubts, flaws and circumstances. Renew my desire to draw near to You and give me a fresh revelation of Your love. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
