Building an Ark in the 21st Century

Passage: Isaiah 2:1-5,Romans 13:11-14,Matthew 26:36-44

This is the time of year when our schedules and life are filled with chaos, frenzy, and doubt. Today’s lessons seem to recognize this reality as a starting point. For thousands of years, God’s people have been praying for peace. And yet, peace still eludes us. For hundreds of years, we followers of Christ have awaited His return. And we are still waiting. That’s what Advent is all about. Waiting for peace. Waiting for God. Waiting with hope and love.
