    It appears that the focus of this Advent Series is on Jesus’s Second Coming and that is appropriate given the season in which we are living. I am convinced more than ever that we are living in that generation that Jesus speaks of in this Text. The fig tree has sprouted leaves. That does not frighten me, it excites me and stirs me to action.

    The part of this text and John David’s reflection that concerns and frightens me is the quote from C.S. Lewis, “When the author walks on to the stage the play is over.” His first coming is an invitation to join the grand play, His second coming is the final act, the play is over. My desire is to make sure everyone in my sphere of influence knows the one we celebrate at Advent (Christmas) and has chosen which side they are on before their death or His Second Coming. More than that I want them to engage the words of Jesus in fresh ways, as JD suggests. A good place to start given our focus on the second coming of Christ is Matthew 24 & 25.
