A woman came to Jesus with a gift unique in its thoughtfulness, costly in its bestowal, timely in its provision, challenging in its impact, and lasting in its memory. In this message, Alistair Begg introduces us to this woman, who understood that following Jesus was about complete abandonment and that giving up her future was a small price to pay to worship her Savior. When the grace of God takes hold of a life, extravagant worship is the normal response to what Christ has done.
An Extraordinary Encounter
What was it like to have a face-to-face encounter with Jesus? From the physically broken man of Mark 2, to the devoted religious man of John 3, and to the promiscuous woman of John 4, Jesus personally engaged unlikely individuals with extraordinary results. None of them walked away from their encounter with Christ unchanged. In this series, Alistair Begg reminds us that each of these individuals had something else in common: their greatest need was not for physical healing or stature, but for a Savior. Jesus offered them a spiritual transformation, and He offers the same thing to us today.
