I know he is coming back, just hope I’ve finished getting comfortable by then!!   Leave a comment

Where is our hope? – The Return of the King?

This Sunday is the┬álast part in our “His Yoke” series. We will be looking at the Ascension and Return of Jesus. Can’t wait! (for Sunday or the Return of Jesus!)

“Where is our hope?”

The early church was all about Jesus: his death, resurrection and ascension, and his imminent return (imminent because they/we have little idea of when) – they clung to his return because often it was all they had to live for, persecution and uncomfortable lives is the backdrop to much of the New Testament. For example Revelation is fuelled by a longing for an end to injustice and persecution by the Return of the King!

Sadly all that should be positive about living in the UK in 2010, i.e. health care, relative wealth, comfortable lives, zero persecution – all these can cause us to not need and take our eyes off the Return of Jesus.

Essentially we think like this: “I know he is coming back, just hope I’ve finished getting comfortable by then!!”
