LESSON: REASONS WHY CHRIST’S RETURN IS RELEVANT
Theme:To Cause All Men Turn From Pursuits Of the World
36.And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?
37.Is anything worth more than your soul?
38.If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the son of man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
Meditating on Christ’s coming ought to cause carnal men to turn from the empty pursuits of worldliness and from hopping in their empty worldly gains, and turn their hearts to seek the living God.
Jesus constantly turns the world’s perspective upside down with talk of first and last, saving and losing.
Here he gives us a choice. We can reject Jesus now and be rejected by him at his second coming, or we can accept him now and be accepted by him then.
Rejecting Christ may help us escape shame for the time being,but it will guarantee an eternity of shame later.
