When Jesus spoke, people listened. There was something different about him; his words were simple yet profound. When he said a prayer, gave a command, offered words of comfort, preached a sermon, or even told a story, his words were vibrant and alive. They were more than beautiful sayings and elegant statements-they were powerful and life-changing. In the towns, villages, and marketplaces, people listened to Jesus in amazement. With only a few words, he changed the lives of the blind, the crippled, the deaf, the heartbroken, and even the sinner. The Bible reveals the incredible stories of Jesus changing the lives of people just like us; people who faced disappointments, difficulties, and even failure. Often, we wish that we too could personally experience his transforming power. His words are still as powerful and relevant today as when he initially spoke them. We will explore the stories he told, the words he spoke, the people he touched, the lives of those he has changed, and will experience for ourselves the life-changing powers of the words of Jesus. The words of Jesus are waiting to be discovered; they are a treasure . . . Hidden in Plain Sight.
