WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

We truly believe that every single person who is a follower of Christ has a powerful story of how they encountered Jesus. Through a friendship, a church, a book, or even alone in a quiet room. For this special summer series, Encounter, we share a few stories of how Jesus captured the hearts of these believers.

My guest for today’s Encounter episode is Matt Krieg. You may recognize Matt from when he was on the podcast with his wife, Laurie earlier this year! In this show, Matt shares his story of growing up in a Christian home, but realizing at 29 years old that he didn’t really know Jesus – he only knew about Jesus. Matt talks about his struggle with comparison to his brother, worth and value. At 11 years old, he was introduced to pornography and fell into a secret addiction for nearly two decades. Matt dealt with so much self-loathing that he truly wanted to take this secret to the grave. One day, he had a moment where he finally handed his lies and shame over to God, and the Lord just took them. He says “His response to me wasn’t ‘Matt, you’re worthless.’ His response to me was ‘Matt, know that I love you.’” That was the beginning of Matt’s journey toward freedom and healing. Friends, that is the Gospel. That is the power of the Gospel. I pray that his story touched you as much as it touched me.
