Series: Looking Back. Looking Forward

Title: Anticipating God’s Faithfulness

Text:  2 Peter 3:8-13

Scripture: Compare our earthly perspective of time with God’s perspective. Talk with your group about verse 8, ”…with the Lord one day is a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” Before we assume this is God’s “formula for time,” compare it with the words of Psalm 90.

Accountability: We ARE anticipating God’s faithfulness. His faithfulness to be patient with us, but also His faithfulness to do what He says He will do. Discuss together verses 10-12. Here it is in the Message: But when the Day of God’s Judgment does come, it will be unannounced, like a thief. The sky will collapse with a thunderous bang, everything disintegrating in a raging inferno, earth and all its works exposed to the scrutiny of Judgment.”

Transformation: Look at verse 14.  If we knew this week would be our last, how would that change the way we live?

“It is unbelievable, unimaginable that Jesus will come again and bring world transforming upheaval,” John Piper

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.
