The final point we will cover for this series on the common faith is: Christ Coming Again.
We have seen that Christ has done everything to save us! His word reveals that He became a man, just like you and me…
…He died on the cross for our sins and resurrected and became the life-giving Spirit. Furthermore, in His ascension He was enthroned to be Lord of all. By repenting and believing in this one, we receive Him, who is God, as our life. This divine life is our new life. What a salvation!
As a Christian, what is our attitude toward the return of our precious Savior? 1 Thessalonians 5:2 says:
For you yourselves know perfectly well that like a thief in the night, so the day of the Lord comes.
On the one hand, this means that His coming will be at a time when no one expects it, especially at a time when some are sleeping. On the other hand, 1 Thessalonians 5:6, just a few verses later, says:
So then let us not sleep, as the rest do, but let us watch and be sober.
This watching is our loving Him and our preparing to meet Him. It is so good that We can do this together! We can prepare to meet our dear Lord… by getting our whole being filled with Him.
