Watch and wait! That is the cry throughout the ages, throughout the pages of Scripture, and that cry still goes out from pulpits across Christendom. It is the final Sunday of the church year. We end with an eye to the sky as we await the return of our Lord in glory. But that topic – watch and wait – isn’t a great one.
It is payback time! You remember it well-last year’s homecoming game. The Midford Maulers defeated the Stanford Saints. It wasn’t close, but this year Stanford ready for Midford. You could say it’s payback time.
What will heaven be like? Often we struggle to grasp the picture God lays out for us of our eternal home by his side. All we know is a sinful, fallen world. While I love the carpet of fallen leaves, in heaven we won’t see death ever again. This Sunday we’ll work through some of the details of our heavenly home.
