27th Nov 2016 – ‘But about that day and hour no one knows’ (Matthew 24:36)

December 16, 2016 Pastor Matt Bishop

How would you change your life if you knew today was your last? Would it be to wait and watch? Maybe that seems a little mundane. But in today’s Gospel text, Matthew 24:36-44, Jesus warns us to keep watch because the Son of man is coming back. This means we are to be waiting people… a people that wait and watch for Christ. But not in fear. Instead, in the power of the Gospel, for Christ promises that his people will be ‘taken’ to be with him (Matthew 24:40-41)
