“The JESUS First Life: LOOKING UP” Part 3
Passage: Colossians 3:4–3:4
The Lord’s Supper is a forecast of the future.
1 Corinthians 11:26 says,“For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.”
Looking back at the cross directs our attention to how we ought to live today and what the future holds for us.
1A. LIVING WITH CHRIST TODAY – “When Christ is your life”
2A. LIVING WITH CHRIST WHEN HE APPEARS – “appears, then you also will appear with Him”
3A. LIVING WITH CHRIST IN GLORY - in glory.”
The Christian possesses a blessed hope (Titus 2:11-13). We patiently endure present suffering as Jesus suffered and confidently await the appearance of Jesus when we will forever be with the Lord.
