November 29, 2015 – The In-Between Times

Scripture:

  • Luke 21:25-32

Key Points:

  • Signs that points to the second advent, when Jesus comes again.
  • Life is difficult – not always, do not bring fulfillment, change comes, etc.  We see it happening today (e.g. recent shootings)(Luke 21:25-26)
  • Anticipate your help (Luke 21:27-28).  People come to help, by reflecting Jesus.
  • Look for God’s Kingdom to break in (Luke 21:29-31)
  • Don’t get lackadaisical (Luke 21:32).  He is coming again!  We’ve heard this before, but don’t get lazy about this message.  It is not a scare tactic, but something to embrace and anticipate!  Be ready!
  • Hold to Jesus’ words (Luke 21:32).  If done, a difference would be made in the world.
  • Don’t miss the expectation of Christ’s coming (Luke 21:34-35)
  • Stay awake! (Luke 21:36)

    • James Clark-Soles:
