Verse 10 in the NIV says, “The Teacher searched to find just the right words, and what he wrote was upright and true.” As we look at our normal speech patterns, do we take the time to “find just the right words” and to use words which are “upright and true?” Talk about how we can encourage one another to step up our daily words by putting them through an “upright and true” filter.


Tim Keller says, “The way you live now is completely controlled by what you believe about the future.” If this is true, how does a reminder about the reality of heaven and hell change the way you want to live out your daily life in this new year?

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.
