It’s the End of the World… and I Feel Fine

ReturnMissio Dei Church is currently going through a teaching series on the Apostle’s Creed. Each week, we take the time to look at one individual line from the creed and consider why the believe is in the creed and why it is important for us today. This past Sunday, I had the privilege of focusing on the line of the creed which says, “He will come again to judge the living and the dead,” and taught what was probably the most hopeful messages that I have ever taught. Here is the recording of the message.

Christians believe that one day Jesus will return. This future event has been characterized and fantasized about in movies, books, and all other mediums for art, but overall has been misunderstood. Christianity is not an end of the world religion. Christianity is a redeem the world religion. God is not going to destroy this world and make all new things. Instead, God is going to make all things new. God is in the business of resurrecting and restoring.

Our first night in Athens is in the books. I am thankful for my strong friendship with so many people who have big hearts and a willingness to serve others. #Athens #Acropolis The cheap seats have the best view! #HTTR I am almost becoming the person who only wants to post pictures of his dog. BUT... who doesn't want to see this?
#MrFinn #fn2187 #adorable Happy Birthday to my best friend and love of my life @lillimcnair! I am immeasurably blessed to spend everyday with you. McAfee Knob is breathtaking. 8 mile hike round trip. So worth it! #mcafeeknob #hikevirginia #appalachiantrail One of my favorite places outside of Lynchburg - The James River Foot Bridge. Back in the day we'd jump and flip off it. Not today! #jamesriver #lynchburgva
