The End Is In Sight

As we move towards the end of the liturgical year towards Doom/Christ The King Sunday, we will embark on a series of thematic Scripture Readings to guide our hearts and thoughts in preparation.

(Doom Sunday – also known as the Feast of Christ The King – is the last day of the church liturgical year. “Doom” in old English meant “Judgment” or “Destiny”. The whole month focuses on the 2nd Coming of Christ and the Final Judgment.)

Sermon: Signs – Leigh

CountdownToDoomSunday2014a

This morning, Leigh shared a message based on Job 14:1–6, I Thessalonians 4:13–18, and Matthew 24:15–28 as part of the sermon series #CountdownToDoomSunday 2014.

Leigh

The sermon takes a look at Jesus’ proclamation of “Signs of The End and His Coming Again” in the Gospel Reading and has us think about them in three ways:

  1. That these signs can be understood as signs of completion. God is at work in History. We are a part of His Kingdom work – joining Him in what He is already at work doing – seeking the Shalom of our lives, our neighbors and the world.
  2. That these are signs of hope. Paul’s message to the Thessalonian church centers on the Second Coming of Jesus as a Source of Hope. Because Jesus rose from the dead, we can also believe that, when He returns, we would see life again. We do not grieve like people who have no hope.
  3. That’s why, perhaps, the most relevant understanding of Jesus’ signs is to see you and I as signs of Jesus First and Second Coming.

As such, the challenge before us is to live out as Signs of God’s Kingdom – living with the end in mind.

The sermon then ends with a challenge and participation exercise: How do you want to be remembered?

  • Write three things that you want to see in your eulogy.
  • For a fuller exercise, consider writing out your eulogy to be read out by someone at your funeral.
