WILD

BRITTANY PETKAU

SCRIPTURE

They’ll turn back to Me. He’ll roar like a lion, and when He roars, His children will scurry in from the west.

Hosea 11:10

SUMMARY

God's character cannot be limited, yet often we sanitize God to become a product of our culture's imagination. As a community, however, we want to rediscover who God really is and look at the attributes that can often confuse us. This week we're starting off by exploring how God is wild and what it means to fear Him.
Our God is to be feared because he is wild and roars like a lion, is a warrior who never loses, and is incredibly zealous. But the thing is, he’s roaring for you. He’s a warrior for you. He’s zealous for you. He’s wild and untameable yet uses the wild character to fight for you.

REFLECTION QUESTIONS 

1.

What are the first attributes that come to your mind when you think about God?

2.

In what ways has our culture sanitized how we view God?

3.

What is your reaction to the call to fear God? How does fearing God change the way that you live?

PAST EPISODES

DEATH TO "BUSY"

November 8th

We often think that what we say are the most important things in our lives is an accurate representation of what we spend our time on, but in reality, what we spend our time on is a way more accurate representation of what we think is important. In this message, we look at three really practical ways of killing “busy” and prioritizing what is actually important.

RATED R FOR ROMANCE

November 1st

Relationships are a huge part of our lives in our 20s, but at times we can put so much pressure on ourselves and our relationships that they end up breaking. There may not be a set formula for relationships, however, there are three questions that we can ask ourselves as we are making decisions that can help us navigate singleness, dating, and marriage.

MONEY MAKES THE WORLD GO AROUND

October 25th

As young adults, talking about money can make us uncomfortable, stressed, and anxious, yet it is something that impacts everything that we do throughout our lives. In this message, we explore why God cares about money, how to dream for our finances, and how to create a healthy attitude for our money now.
