A New Hope

The Parousia of the Lord Jesus Christ is the next and final redemptive event that Christians long for. This is the great Day of the Lord in its second and final act. On this Day, time ends and we in Christ will enter into our everlasting rest in which to worship God in perfection. The yearly cycle of life will continue under God’s providential goodness. There will be moments of exhilaration and deep sadness. The way through it is faith, hope, and love. Hope in Christ in this life, but also, and in times that do not last, hope in Christ for the life to come. In our pilgrim way, in the ups and downs, we sing with glad hearts, “Joyful, joyful, we adore thee,” not only at his first coming, but as we look for his return.

Thinking About Time: All of Creation and History is God’s Story

As fallen creatures, our time, our days, are numbered – they are counting down – there is no time to waste. As a creature, I complain about not having time, and then when I do have it, I waste it. I can’t get it back. It’s gone, lost to history. But what I hope to encourage us with today, in that while we feel trapped by time, it’s important to note that our Triune God controls time and even redeems it!

Liturgy In Reformed Worship

Liturgy displays the glory of God. The church is where God calls us into the Savior of the world and to learn of Jesus the Christ through the ongoing work of the life-giving Spirit. The powers of the dark passing age disappear in the light of the age to come.
