Topic: No Ordinary Family

Text: Genesis 15

SCRIPTURE:  In Genesis 15, God promises Abraham that his offspring will be greater in number than the stars. God fulfills His promise, but not for a long time – long past Abraham and Sarai’s childbearing years. The delay made them doubt God’s promise. Talk about the story of promise, of doubt (and the ramifications of that doubt) and God’s fulfillment.

ACCOUNTABILITY:  Can you recall a time when you felt God disappointed you? What was your reaction initially? What is your response now?

TRANSFORMATION: Maybe your family of origin has a long legacy of faith, or maybe that legacy is beginning with you. What promises are you claiming for future generations? Do you share those thoughts with your family?

He Gets Us

Though Jesus walked the earth 2,000 years ago, He still knows about the problems you face today. Not only does Jesus know what plagues us as a culture, He gets us. Jesus can relate. He was tempted, too. He was disrespected, too. He was doubted, too. He mourned, too. He suffered, too.

Faith Church is joining other churches in the Chicagoland area for the series, He Gets Us. We’ll explore that Jesus knows about our insecurity, exhaustion, anxiety, guilt, loneliness and grief. Join us for this new series as we find assurance in knowing we aren’t alone in this world. We have a Savior who gets us and cares about what we are feeling.
