EXCERPTS FROM THE EXPOSITION ON THE THEME - REDEEM THE TIME, I COME QUICKLY (PART 2)
Jesus would come soon but we do not know how or when He would come but we surely know He would. 'Christo mogya na ye de ko heaven, enye ye trinii.'
Important things to know as we wait for the second coming of Christ
- Faith in Calvary - salvation is by the blood of Jesus not our good deeds. We do good or live righteous out of love for him that saved us. When you love someone, you have a burning desire to do what pleases your loved one.
- Holiness - there are two types of holiness: overcoming sin and keeping your mind pure and worship
- Love for neighbours, especially the poor and marginalized - your love for God must transform you to help others
Lastly we need to work hard and be a channel of evangelism (2 Kings 7:1-3). Other scriptural references: Rev. 22:18-20, Romans 13:11-14
