Last Judgment

Bible Text: Jeremiah 26:1-6, 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10, Luke 19:11-26Series: Perspective

This Sunday’s scripture readings focused on the Last Judgment. There was no sermon given on this Sunday, however there is a listening guide document posted below. This document will be used for this week’s Life Groups.

The following are the reading introductions that were given prior to each scripture reading:

First Scripture Reading – Jeremiah 26:1-6

When we consider God’s judgments we must recognize that they are just. He punishes those who persist in disobedience to him. We also recognize and give thanks that God reaches out before he punishes.  He preaches the law that condemns sin and disobedience, so that we will turn away from evil and turn to him for forgiveness.  God is persistent in that preaching – he sends his servants again and again, just as he did in the days of Jeremiah. Jeremiah also was one of those servants. He was given this message that was intended to turn people’s hearts back to God. Yet, God was clear that punishment was prepared for those who refused to listen and remained in their evil.

Second Scripture Reading – 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10

There is a sense of relief and a sense of justice that we have knowing God’s judgment will come upon the wickedness of the World. We can look forward to Christ’s second coming, not only because we know the joy to which he will bring us, but also because he will bring to justice those who have acted maliciously in this world. While there is that sense of relief and justice, Christ’s return at the end of the world in judgement also provides a sense of urgency to our work. We are urged to share his messages of grace and forgiveness more and more so that others might believe our testimony and be counted worthy of the kingdom of God for Christ’s sake.

Gospel Reading – Luke 19:11-26

Through faith in Jesus Christ and his suffering, death, and resurrection we know that his blood has spared us punishment in the last judgment. However, there is still a judgment we will undergo.  We have been richly blessed in many ways by our Savior – with our financial resources, with our skills and abilities, with the knowledge of the gospel – and Jesus has left us here on this earth to use those blessings for him and for the good of his kingdom. Jesus’ parable in the gospel urges us to makes the best possible use of his blessings, so that when he returns he may say to us, “Well done, my good servant!”
