Christians can be funny when it comes to the return of Jesus. People can either go a little overboard with charts, graphs and date predictions or they fail to see any practical significance of the return of Jesus to their everyday lives. The truth is, how you understand the return of Jesus has colossal implications for how you think and live as a modern-day person in the 21st century. Our core passages this week are clear about a couple of things: one, Jesus IS coming back & two, Jesus is both a loving and just judge. Because these things are true, we should live in a state of readiness for His return. We should engage the mission Jesus has given us. We should encourage one another as we see the day drawing near. Our King is coming for His people and that is great news!
