He Gets Us Message Series
He Gets Us invites all to consider the story of a man who created a radical love movement that continues to impact the world thousands of years later.
Each week we’ll use a different topic as the lens through which we can see how we can get Jesus. He gets us. And we can have him.

Was Jesus ever stressed?
One night, Jesus became particularly worried because he knew his adversaries were coming for him. He’d soon face arrest, torture, and even execution. It created an unimaginable weight. A weight so heavy he began sweating blood.
Did Jesus ever mourn?
Jesus, a man who lived 2,000 years ago, understood the depth of sorrow many of us, our families, and friends had or are still going through today. Jesus dealt with heartache when he lost his father, Joseph; when his cousin, John the Baptist, was executed; and when his good friend, Lazarus, died.
Jesus loved the people we hate.
Who is “we”? It’s each of us. It’s you. It’s me. All of us. What would the world look like if we each followed Jesus’ teaching to love our enemies?
Did Jesus really struggle as I do?
Jesus displayed immense empathy for the poor and the needy. But why? Jesus was homeless himself. He noted that birds had nests and foxes had holes, but he didn’t have a place to rest his head each night.
Jesus lived in the middle of a culture war.
Though the politics differed, the contention, debate, and animosity were similar.
