Here we are 100 generations removed from Jesus’ day. And even though many of us pray, “Come, Lord Jesus,” we maybe aren’t so concerned about his coming. We’re pretty sure it’s not happening any time soon. So, instead of raising our heads, as Jesus encourages, we just keep our heads down, going about our business and trying to make the best of things here. But the less we think about Christ’s coming again, the less we think about Christ present with us, the more our hearts are weighed down with the worries of the world. All too often, we turn from God in order to put our trust in so many other things that have no power to save. Sermon from the 8:45am service on 12/2/18.
