EASTER!

  | 

“Christ is risen!”  “He is risen indeed!”

Text:  Colossians 1:15-20

Scripture:   Read verses 19-20 in the Message, “So spacious is he, so expansive, that everything of God finds its proper place in him without crowding. Not only that, but all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe—people and things, animals and atoms—get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his death, his blood that poured down from the cross.”

As we think on the meaning behind this Easter weekend when we celebrated the core of our faith in Jesus’ death and resurrection, reflect on these words, “but all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe—people and things, animals and atoms—get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his death, his blood that poured down from the cross.”

While we see the cross as a picture of what Christ did for us as individuals, spend time pondering and talking about what this verse says about the universal impact of His death.

Accountability: This passage makes it clear, it is all about Jesus! Then why do you think we are so prone to worship creation (our world) and creations (man-made stuff) rather than the Creator?

Transformation:  Should the life-changing, universe-changing events we celebrate on Easter change our day-to-day living?  How? What do we need to keep in the forefront of our  thinking?

Current Series


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.
