Looking Up for Jesus

Titus 2:11-15

We have recently been considering the concept of looking up to God. Today I want us to think about the literal return of Jesus Christ to this earth. The 2nd coming of Christ is not a myth, but it is a reality. It is an extremely important truth of Christianity. Let me illustrate the importance that God places on this doctrine. Over 300 times in the Bible we find this truth discussed. That is more often than the new birth, baptism, or repentance.

How should we be looking for the return of Jesus Christ? Let me suggest three things this morning:

I. Looking Up With Fears: in respect to the Judgment Seat of Christ.

II. Looking Up With Tears: As we consider the lost.

III. Looking Up With Cheers: as we realize we will finally be home.

Right now, what comes to mind when we think about the return of Christ?

We should be looking up

Are you ready for Jesus to come today? If not, there is no better time to get ready than right now. Do you know Christ as Savior? Are you serving Christ the way you know He would want you to? Why not come now and settle it once and for all?
