  1. More than that, as children of the One who is the Resurrection and the eternal Life, as children who have themselves been both justified and regenerated, live as if Christ has already reappeared, as if the parousia has happened.
  2. John the Baptist’s question in our text offers you an opportunity to help your congregation take seriously the doubts experienced by those who live by faith.
  3. When the church is a political actor, the gospel doesn’t have the final word.
  4. It is terribly easy to set up our theology as a buffer against the real coming of the Lord and its consequences.
  5. When and how did the church start this season of anticipation?
  6. All our sin and shame is answered for in the death and resurrection of our Lord.
  7. For with God we look not for the order of nature, but rest our faith in the power of him who works.
  8. The Lord is coming, that much is certain. He is coming to reign, not only over the heavens, but also over the members of your congregation.
  9. We of all people, because of Christ, can build securely on the future because the truth of Christ runs from the past to the present, establishing a most certain future.
  10. Christ the King’s return will show us what we can only imagine. He will be a king and His a kingdom will be unlike any we have known.
  11. Neither attentive note-taking, nor appreciative head-nods, nor even sympathetic tears satisfy the purpose of preaching. Only lives that are changed by the Word working in the hearts of God’s people can do that.
  12. While the world is full of horizons and endpoints, for Christians, there is always tomorrow, and there are people in that tomorrow waiting for us as we wait for them.
