When Will Christ Return?

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, November 22, 2015 · Christ the King Sunday

Series: Facing Jesus: Living in the Truth/Neglected Doctrines and Popular Heresies

Text:Mark 13:32-37


The second coming of Christ is the climax of all Christian teaching and indeed of scripture itself.  The fact that Christ will return gives meaning and purpose, not only to our personal lives, but to all of history.  The world is alarmed by “wars and rumors of war.”  The recent attacks in Paris and the downing of a Russian airplane have brought these concerns into sharp focus.  Yet God’s plan is being worked out.  It is not being carried out apart from human actions and decisions. God will have the final say.  Jesus is preparing us for the defining event in all of history.  The promise of the second coming has often been misunderstood and distorted.  Jesus himself clarifies it for us.  We are not to be alarmed.  We are however to be alert and awake.  There is no greater encouragement in all the struggles and conflicts of history than to know that Jesus is coming again.

Colossians 1:21-29: “Promised Hope”

November 4, 2015

After his focus on the supremacy of Christ Paul now turns to both the hope and challenge that this sets up in the lives of believers.  He reminds them of their past when they lived in rebellion against the true God.  In this section Paul holds in tension two key and often apparently contrasting themes.  On the one hand he emphasizes the role of grace, that solely through Christ we have been made  ”holy and blameless and irreproachable.”  But on the other hand we have the challenge to live out the faith we profess.  Paul continues to amplify the theme that salvation is not a status or a possession but is rather a relationship to Christ.  The “hope of glory” is Christ in us.
