Waiting on a Faithful God

Passage:Mark 13:7-8

Preacher: Calvin Lane

Keywords: advent, christ the king, faith, kingdom, trust

We've come to the closing Sundays of the church year -- the church's year ends in November and starts up wit the first Sunday of Advent. And it's interesting that the themes we get in our scripture lessons are the same as the themes we'll hear very soon in the season of Advent. In short, we end where we begin: anxiety about a present darkness, but a deep trust in a God who promises to bring light to that darkness. If we're sober, we see that brokenness in our culture and in ourselves. So what do we do? Our hunger for God will grow sharper, and we learn to pray more, trust more, serve more, and witness to the world our faith in a God who saves.
