Theme for 2017
Like He’s Coming Tomorrow
"10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.” - 2 Peter 3:10-13
Now that 2017 is here, we must continue to work even harder than we did in 2016. Our priority must be about “seeking the Kingdom” first (Matt. 6:33). This year’s theme, Like He’s Coming Tomorrow, should help us all see the urgency of meeting every spiritual goal, both individually and collectively. Whether Jesus returns this year or in a future year, the time for us to act is today, Like He’s Coming Tomorrow.
In 2 Peter 3:10, Peter writes that “the day of the Lord will come.” There is no question of “if” he will come, but “when” he will come. How would we live each day if we lived it as if He were coming tomorrow? Our vision for this year is to help us live each day with that thought before us. Each month we will focus on a different aspect of His coming in hope that we will all become more focused on eternity as we live each day like He's coming tomorrow.
