The Way of Seeing

Text: Mark 13:1-23
Rev. John Downs

Life in a fallen world entails a lot of uncertainty and suffering.  In the face of this truth, today’s challenging text encourages us not to submit to fear or anxiety.  Instead we are called to view all of redemptive history — past and future — with humility and vigilance.  Our hope lies not in our own perfect plan for life, but in the secure and living hope we enjoy in Christ, who in his perfect timing will usher in the fullness of his kingdom.
