Sermon for 12/11/13 "Redemption Drawing Near" Luke 21

Wildlife scene from trip to Boston - full of flora and fauna in the midst of traffic, noise, people.

The last days are coming. Jesus’ return is near. How do we know?
We think it would be a time of comfort and joy, peace, prosperity.
But instead we have trouble
 roaring sea - great and dangerous power
 fear, foreboding - try watching CNN, doomsday stories
It seems that everything which is good and right has been overturned!
What will we do?
Look up.
Straighten up.
Receive the promises of God.
You are safe, you are secure, you are imperishable.

All the disaster that comes upon us, all that can come upon us, as we trust in Jesus we find ourselves safe. There’s no harm. Figs - perishable fruit - and we are guarded by the Lord.

Back to the traffic scene and the bees busy about their work.

Summer is near. Where’s our mind?
