Life in the 4th Quarter: Introduction
1 Peter 4: 7-11
As followers of Jesus Christ, we should be living our lives in the anticipation of and in preparation for His return. In the teachings of the New Testament, we draw 3 observations regarding his return.
I. The expectation of Christ’s Return.
II. The timing of Christ’s Return.
III. The preparation for Christ’s Return.

A. Faithfulness

B. Purity

C. Unity
Conclusion: The end of all things is near!
Remember to Pray: For Ben & Erin H. as they await the birth of their child...that our farmers will be safe as they plant their crops...that God will protect our medical workers from Covid-19 as they carry out their work...for our teachers, students and families as the school year draws to a close...for Mike & Heidi R. as they continue to care for Heidi's father in their home...for Nik H. and Chase V. as they serve our nation in the US Army overseas....for those planning for this year's VVBS (Virtual Vacation Bible School)...that all those in our congregation who fall into the 'at risk' demographic will be able to steer clear of the coronavirus...for those who have or who are anticipating a loss of income as 'non-essential' businesses remain closed through the end of the month...for our president, governor and other elected officials as the weight of many decisions which impact the lives of millions rest upon their shoulders...for our missionaries who are experiencing the challenges presented by Covid-19 in places far removed from their family support systems.
