The Essential Advent Message

Sermon of Sunday, December 5, 2010

Preacher: Francis Noordanus

Scriptures: Matthew 3:1-10

Introduction:

This is the third and final sermon in this year's Advent series on living in expectation of the Christ's Return at the end of the age.  Francis continues his reflection on the implications of the Gospel for the end of this age and the return of Christ.  He suggests the key instruction or message Christians need to hear in this season is, Prepare the way of the Lord, as God's invitation to his people to cooperate with Him in history.  The biblical images of the Tenant Farmer and the Bride are considered to bring home what is required from us to prepare the way of the Lord.
