Story by Gary Gibbs
Jesus is coming back to earth” is not simply a pious cliché for the super committed. It’s rock solid Bible truth. It’s also core to Pennsylvania Conference’s mission to help people embrace the fact that Jesus loves them and is returning again.
But even more than a message point or mission focus, I have found that the certainty of Jesus’ return is personally relevant. When death’s darkness shuttered the eyes of my loved ones, the bright promise of a future resurrection brought comfort and hope. When family and friends are stricken with disease, the Second Coming reminds me that eternal healing is just around the corner. Even the pleasures of this life are exponentially enhanced when I consider that they are a foretaste of the boundless joy God has in store for His faithful people.
The Second Advent is not just doctrine. It is a way of life, woven into the fabric of our daily journey. A precious companion. It is certainly too good and grand to keep to ourselves. That’s why it finds expression in our message and mission. And it is the reason you and I must do everything to share this amazing truth of Jesus’ soon return with everyone, everywhere!
