The Second Sunday of End Times: Last Judgment

November 10, 2013


O Christ, you died, and yet you live; To me account your merit, My pardon seal, my sins forgive, And cleanse me by your Spirit. Beneath your cross I view the day When heav’n and earth shall pass away, And thus prepare to meet you. (Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal 208:4)

Jesus is coming to judge—a day of terror for those who have troubled his people, a day of wonder for all who believe in him and marvel at his glory.

Our King has entrusted each of us with his saving Word. Are we going to keep it hidden or use it to serve him so that others brought to know him?

Jeremiah 26:1-6

Listen and Turn Before It’s Too Late

  1. How earnestly he calls to you!
    1. Why does the Lord call out to us through his word?
    2. How does complacency lead us in the wrong direction?
  2. How disastrous to ignore his words!
    1. What ultimate disaster, pictured by the destruction of Jerusalem, comes to all who ignore the Lord’s words?
    2. What has the Lord done for us, since he longs to save sinners rather than destroy?
    3. How do we live each day when we keep in mind the final harvest?
