“Following Jesus and Loving People”


God keeps his promises! The pages of Genesis through Malachi (Old Testament) contain many specific prophesies predicting the coming of the Messiah. When the fullness of time came, Jesus Christ burst on the scene as a light shining in the darkness. As shepherds and wise men looked into the face of baby Jesus, they saw hope for the world being born again.  I enjoy celebrating Christmas, not just because of sentimental memories surrounding family and friends. Christmas does more than flood my memories, it fills me with hope for the future. We are promised of another appearance of Jesus, “This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way…” (Acts 1:11). Before Jesus came the first time, John the Baptist preceded him as the “forerunner”, proclaiming to the world, “Get ready, the King is coming!” In a real sense, believers in Jesus today carry the same message of John the Baptist. Our proclamation does not end with, “Jesus came”, but that “he will come again…and soon”! Anyone with a knowledge of the Bible and current events can see the amazing alignment of the prophesies. God kept his promise before. Jesus came. God will keep his promise again. Jesus will return. Our daily responsibility is similar to that of John. Jesus said of him, “John was a lamp that burned and gave light” (John 5:35). We simply love and follow Jesus as lights. While the world burns for various causes and passions, may we be counted among the unashamed who “burn” for the Gospel of Jesus. So, the story of Jesus is not merely a past chapter of history. The Lord Jesus is alive right now, and is about to write the last chapter.

Are you ready?
