Jesus Is Coming Again
What better way to wrap up our study on gospel basics then by looking at the future hope we have in Jesus’ return. That is the moment when God will make all things right, for good, and how we respond to this truth determines how we live and the impact we have here on earth.
Throughout this study we’ve seen many truths of our faith. We looked at everything from the death of Christ to His return. We studied what type of relationship Jesus desires of us, why He desires it, and what we can do to grow it. We’ve been reminded of the importance of sharing these truths with others. In essence, we’ve gotten small glimpses of the things we, as Christians, should do to worship and obey our Father.
Those truths lead us to the picture of the eternal worship service described in Revelation 7:9:
“After this I looked, and there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were robed in white with palm branches in their hands.”
When we reflect on the picture John describes, we’re motivated to do our part to introduce more people to Jesus so they can be a part of that incredible eternity. Christ died and was risen so all who believe could come worship Him. Are you being faithful to that end?
As you prepare to lead a group this Sunday, think through these questions:
- What are you doing to prepare for the ultimate worship service of eternity?
- What can you do so that your passion for the gospel doesn’t wane when this study is over?
