Advent 1

Jeremiah 33:14-16; 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13; Luke 21:25-36

Why do only bad things seem to presage Christ's return?

Well, for starters, in order for the new world to begin, the old one must definitively come to an end. Jesus says, "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away."

Though the Advent readings can sound fatalistic, there is work the follower of Christ is called to do here and now. Spiritual victories can and must be won. Hope is found in these words of His that will not pass away.

Watch or read this week's sermon (which builds on last week's) to hear more about the work our Messiah-King calls us to do.
