Inherit the Kingdom!
Selected verses from Revelation chapters 5, 11, and 12
Today we have arrived at the end of the church year, in which we have traveled in our designated Scripture lessons through the life of Christ, culminating in His victorious reign. Today’s lessons point us to the final fulfillment of our Lord’s salvation plan, when Christ will deliver His rescued children to God the Father. At that time, the old is done away with and the eternal “new” is experienced by God’s resurrected children. Today’s worship provides an appropriate bridge to the season of Advent, which emphasizes hope and expectation, the longing for the coming of the heavenly kingdom of God amid the darkness of a sinful world.
