I was overwhelmed at the thought of all who have given and served to make this weekend possible. I have been challenged to KNOW HIM like never before! The power of the In-Christ message has pierced me and I am liberated to know my self-life has been crucified with Christ.

This was a life changing experience! Through the blood and the cross I am a new man! Everything was truly finished on the cross and the Truth has set me free.

Cross Encounter brought into focus and consolidated all the teachings of the Restoration Class so the Spirit could reveal to me the goal of the Gospel and what it truly means to live wasted for Jesus Christ.

For years the extent of my salvation rested on the truth that Jesus lived and then died for my sins. Living forgiven but defeated day in and day out caused me to cry out, “Lord, there has got to be more.” He heard my cry, He caused my cry, and He answered my cry. Truths that were laid before me at Cross Encounter I now cling to and have become Life to me. So many of the Life-giving truths in the Word consist of two intertwining halves that are inseparable. “Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest.”

I attended the first Cross Encounter in October '08. Saturday morning during devotionals I was crying out to the Lord that I can't do it. I have tried and tried, and I kept going through this defeating cycle of trying hard and giving up over and over again. Then, the Holy Spirit told me to listen and really pay attention to the next teaching. It was on the Holy Spirit. The person who taught was saying that the new man has the desire to live out the Christian life, but in and of himself the new man doesn't have the power. Holy Spirit empowers me to live the Christian life. Holy Spirit isn't an "it." Holy Spirit is the very Person who empowered Jesus Christ. He is my most treasured gift from the Father. If it wasn't for the Holy Spirit I would not be saved. He is also the very power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead!!! I am so thankful for the Holy Spirit. I no longer live a defeated Christian life!
