    • The first coming of Jesus may have caught some people by surprise, but there is no excuse for being surprised when He comes again. We have been told over and over in various books of the bible that He will come again, at a time God chooses. Until that time, we are to be prepared and to wait patiently and with eager anticipation.

    • Last week we were encouraged to WATCH. Expect Jesus at any time. In the meantime, we must PREPARE. Some doubters will try to tell you that it’s all a hoax but they have chosen to forget that in the beginning God created the heavens and earth, brought the great flood and started over with Noah and his family. God does not operate on our schedule, He is patient and longsuffering, so He will come when He’s ready and when He does, everything will be destroyed. We must live holy and godly lives in preparation for when He comes again.

    • By this time, John the Baptist was in jail, but his disciples kept him up to date on what the Messiah was doing. John told them to ask Jesus if He was the one they were expecting. They went back to John telling them of all of the amazing things He was doing. We are looking forward to when Jesus will come again, at a time unknown to us, so we better be prepared. With this knowledge, Christians should be out there watching, preparing and proclaiming His second coming. At this time of the year, peoples hearts are more open to hearing this good news and it is up to us to proclaim this news to friends, family and others with whom we come in contact.

    • Christmas. The time when kids dream of Santa and the gifts he brings and adults of peace and goodwill to men. We tend to be more generous and a little kinder at this time of year but, more importantly, it’s the time when we celebrate the birth of our savior Jesus Christ, the most precious gift of all. The Christmas story told in chapter 2 of the book of Luke, announcing the Savior’s birth was just the beginning. During His time on earth, Jesus went through many trials and tribulations, but He left us with the encouraging promise that Christians the world over can look forward to, He is coming again. When? We don’t know, but He is coming again. Watch, be Prepared, Proclaim the Good News and Rejoice in His promise.

    • One of the most important things that Christians are required to do is share their faith. Unfortunately, for most Christians, it is also the scariest. Fear of rejection is probably the biggest reason that most of us don’t do it followed closely by the fear of messing up. Remember when God told Moses to be His mouthpiece to Pharaoh? Moses claimed that he was not a good speaker and was afraid he would mess up. We saw how it all turned out when God was with Moses in the “negotiations” and so we can be sure that God will be with us as we share our faith. In today’s sermon Pastor Bruce describes a simple, yet very effective tool to help us share our faith without fear and shame.
