“Are We Almost There Yet?”
Text: Romans 13:8-14, Romans 12:1-2, Matthew 24:36-44
On this first Sunday of Advent, we are challenged to consider the time–that the return of Christ is imminent. Indeed, it is closer now then when we first believed. The question that is before us is not when Christ will return, but how we ought to live in the in-between-time. The Season of Advent reminds us that our moments today are part of the flow of God’s interaction with all of history–past, present, and future.
