11-19-2017 Sermon - Since We Belong to the Day


The Day of the Lord, that is, Christ's promised return at the end of the age, will come unexpectedly as a thief in the night. For Christ will come in all his royal splendor and he will judge the inhabitants of earth. Even for baptized believers, it is important that their faith is living and active. Such a faith lives in the light of God's Word, continually repents of sins, and continually trusts and hopes in what Jesus' death and resurrection accomplished for us.
