"Take a Look Around You," Luke 21: 5--19; Pastor Marvin G. Spence
As Believers we take note that we are living in dangerous times where corruption abounds, selfishness seems to be the norm and sin is celebrated by some. Just watch and listen to what is considered newsworthy and what drowns out the voices of the righteous. If we believe that there is a Second Advent and Jesus coming back to hold everyone accountable for their deeds, then we should have a sense of urgency, avoid procrastination, reflect on our faith discipline and seek Holy Spirit empowerment to stay on course. We have two priorities: Work on our spiritual growth and to help others on their faith journey, lest anyone unknowing of the Gospel, is left behind.
