Sermon Notes

We live in a very shocking culture, with ever changing goal lines, and it can make you dizzy. I was talking with a friend the other day and he said that 2020 feels just like we’ve walked into an episode of the Twilight Zone. It feels almost like we are living in an alternate reality. We’ve never seen anything like this before.  But, be assured, Jesus makes it clear that this is where we are headed as we get closer to the rapture and the second coming of Christ. The closer we get to the day of the Lord, the worse things are going to get. So, in reality… we haven’t entered a parallel universe, we haven’t entered the twilight zone.. we are actually just seeing scripture fulfilled. It was always going to get shockingly worse before it got better. We are in the last days.  And instead of just ranting on Facebook, or protesting at the capitol, or cowering in our homes… we need to learn how to respond to all of this according to scripture. How do we confront all of this… in a righteous way that brings glory to God?  We can make a difference for Christ in a shocking culture!  Romans 12:2 says…. “do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds… This is so true for us today. We are in the world but not of the world. We must change the world without chasing it. Today I want us to see that Our Culture May Shock Us But We Mustn’t Let It Shake Us.
