Believers have a future

Proper 28

Daniel 12:1-3; Hebrews 10:11-25; Mark 13:1-8

Sunday's readings talk about the future, and the fact that the followers of Christ have a future worth believing in. That hope is rooted in the second coming of Jesus the Messiah.

For many, the past is the present feeling of remorse, that sometimes chokes any present feeling of hope. Thus, how we live in the now depends on our understanding of this simple framing of past and future.

Is your past a land of unfinished business, remorse, and regret? If so, then your "religion" will be one of shadowy rituals that signify an unfinished atonement.

Listen to or read a transcript of this sermon to hear how, if your past has been blotted out by Christ's finished work of atonement, your conscience can be at peace in the present, and your faith rooted in hope for a future with Christ.
