Prepare: Be Careful or Your Hearts Will Be Weighed Down
Sunday, December 2, 2018
Pastor Steve Brown
We prepare for the coming of Jesus by not being weighed down by addictions and anxieties. Jesus is coming again to judge the living and the dead. This is good news for those who trust in Jesus and obey his commands. It can be a frightening future for those who are consumed by the addictions and anxieties of life in this world. The frantic and fearful preparing we fall into leading up to Christmas is a parable for this. We rightly prepare for the coming of Jesus when we get free from sinful addictions and anxieties that weigh down our hearts.
Next Step: When you get weighed down, remember that our real life is yet to come.
Lessons: Jeremiah 33:14-16, 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13, Luke 21:25-36
