03 Dec How to Encounter God
Welcome to How to Encounter God!
After completing this course you will be closer to God than you are right now. Here is a quick overview:
- 12 Week e-course done at your own pace.
- About three lessons a week.
- Each week includes an interview that you will be blessed by.
- Several lessons have suggested activations to take you deeper.
The basis of the course comes from 1 Corinthians 11:1, “Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.” There is something powerful about learning spiritual practices from our forerunners in the Early Church. They knew God and encountered Him. As we follow their example we will grow deeper in love with Jesus and enter into what eternal life is all about — genuine relationship.
In this course, we are learning specifically from Christians that come under the broad title “Christian Mystic.” The term mystic can be controversial. We are careful to define it and contrast this with mysticism in other religions. This occurs in the beginning of the course because we want you to see that there are powerful things for us to learn from genuine Christians in our history. If Christian mysticism comes with baggage for you then you will especially find the first few weeks and the interviews helpful. We take the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, authoritative Word of God which when followed will lead you to personally know God experiencially.
You will get out of this course what you put into it. We suggest you take time to practice the activations presented here. Draw close to God and He will draw close to you.
