Fully and faithfully aligned to God’s Time – this is the Biblical focus of our Sunday sermons from January to March. I think the topic is worth – our time – to give our full attention to. Time is valuable, precious, and substantial in determining our eternal destiny. The thing that we must always keep in the forefront of our minds is that we have time now, but not forever. Give some thought to this text: But concerning the times and the seasons, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. (1 Thessalonians 5:1-2). This truth is intended to grab hold of our attention. To keep our heads and hearts locked in on the end of time when the Lord Jesus Christ returns for His beloved Church. The text points out that this climactic event will be both sudden and surprising. Many will be unsaved, and unprepared, for this divine shutting down of time.
That’s why, at this first getting started quarter of 2024, we’re preaching and teaching what God’s Word reveals to us about time – God’s time. One author writes this about time, “When a person gets into the habit of wasting time, he is sure to waste a great deal that does not belong to him.” Good observation! Let’s be clear, we cannot think right, live right, and even die right if we’re thinking wrong about time. This Sunday, our sermon is titled: Revisiting the Doctrine of God’s Time part 1. Let’s hear and receive the Word and be blessed.
