Where do you live?

Text:  2 Corinthians 5:17-20

SCRIPTURE: A form of the word “reconcile” is used three times in this short passage. Do we understand it? In verse 18 we read about God doing the reconciling and then He gives US the “ministry of reconciliation.” What does that mean?

ACCOUNTABILITY: God’s Word tells us we are not at home here. Why do you think we work so hard to make it feel like home? “So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,” Ephesians 2:19. 

As you’ve heard the video testimonies of Shelly, Robert, Jamie, and Pat and Ryan, did you sense a connection to your story in one of theirs?

Have you begun to identify your own Emmaus Road story? 

TRANSFORMATION:  Next week you will have the opportunity to be “commissioned into ministry.” Spend time this week talking to God and someone you trust about this step. What would God have you do? Are you willing to trust Him and step into this service? Take some time to identify which vocational group which fits best with your role.

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.
