Waiting with Preparedness


Series: Waiting for God Knows What

Topic: Waiting with Preparedness

Scripture Reference: Isaiah 40:3-5 and Luke 3:1-22

Discussion Questions:


We look at another prophecy fulfilled this week – this time it is about the life and ministry of John the Baptist. John’s words challenged his culture. And the scholars of the day were reminded of Isaiah’s words in Isaiah 40. Why do you think John’s teaching threatened the leaders of the day?


Look specifically at Luke 3:10-14. How did John encourage the people to live differently? What are the connections to our culture today? Do John’s counter-cultural challenges touch an area of your life? 


Maybe you are not a tax collector, but in keeping with his message, what in your life could be adjusted?


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.
