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.
Insecurity | February 17/18
Insecurity can sneak up on all of us - are we “enough,” are we being who we should be and doing what we should do? Jesus gently reminds us of His constant care and compassion for those who are His children, “No one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.”
Exhaustion | February 24/25
Sleep deprivation and “running on empty” seem to be normal. Add a dose of “fear of missing out,” and you have a family, church, society of weary people. Jesus shows a better way to live. He helps us find “rest for our souls.”
Anxiety | March 2/3
The words, “don’t worry, be happy,” just don’t cut it. Our lives are filled with things that pile on anxiety - kids, retirement, the state of the country, and the list goes on. Jesus goes beyond the pithy saying, to explaining how He can help us He offers priorities that make a difference, “seek first the kingdom of God.”
Guilt | March 9/10
Guilt can be paralyzing. Our worst days replay over and over in our minds. What could it be like to be free of guilt and shame and regret? Jesus offers a different way to live, free of the guilt of our past.
Loneliness | March 16/17
Loneliness may be THE epidemic of contemporary Western culture. Yet Jesus teaches his followers that they are part of the family of God. They were not meant to be lone rangers, but part of a living organism, God’s Church.
Grief | March 23/24
Grief often comes when we least expect it - the loss of a loved one, a dream, a job or a plan. And while we cannot control the event that brings grief, Jesus helps us in our response to that event and the waves of grief that come as a result.
