I Promise: Jesus is Coming Back
July 30, 2023
Description: One of the greatest Promises Jesus ever made has yet to be fulfilled. It is the promise that Jesus is coming back. In light of his faithfulness in fulfilling so many other promises, do we remain confident that he will still fulfill it? If so, as believers, what should we be doing while we wait?
In light of this week’s message, we encourage you to consider these questions and dig in a little deeper with your personal study, with your family, or with your small group.
Have you been hurt or felt let down by unfulfilled promises made to you? Have you failed to keep any of your promises?
Read John 8:12, John 8:36, John 10:10, Matthew 6:31-34, Matthew 11:28-30, John 14:27, John 11:25. What need or circumstance does each address? Is there one or more of these that is especially helpful or meaningful for you?
How does knowing the truth of the resurrection of Jesus help you have confidence in the Lord’s second coming?
Have you considered that Jesus paid for us to have a relationship with him with his own blood? How does that make you feel? What should our response to that gift be?
Read 2 Peter 3:8-9. Since we don’t know when he is coming back, what should we be doing in the meantime?
- Be Clear (Not get caught up in dates and times and signs)
- Be Ready (Surrender to Jesus if Not saved, Live as if saved if we are)
- Be Intentional (Make our remaining days count)
- Be Faithful (Press ahead even when it’s hard)
