Holy in the Meantime

Holy in the Meantime Sermon Audio Here

Isaiah 40:1-11

          Over the triple doorways of the cathedral of Milan there are three inscriptions spanning the splendid arches. Over one is carved a beautiful wreath of roses, and underneath it is the legend, “All that which pleases is but for a moment.”
          Over the other is sculptured a cross, and there are the words, “All that which troubles us is but for a moment.”
          But underneath the great central entrance to the main aisle is the inscription, “That only is important which is eternal.”

If we always realize these three truths, we will not let trifles trouble us, not be interested so much in the passing pleasures of the hour. We should live for the permanent and the eternal.

To Make The Most of Our Meantime, Remember:

SOMEDAY All Will Be Set Right
Isa.40:1-11 Isaiah: God loves us too much to abandon us

      • v5 the glory WILL BE revealed
      • v6/8 we might not see it; we’re short-lived
      • v10/11 Lord comes with power and compassion, close to His heart

SOMEDAY Might Not Be TODAY
2 Pet. 3:8-15 What to do while we wait?

      • v8 God’s view of time and ours aren’t the same
      • v9 God patiently waits FOR US
      • v10 Day of the Lord is unknown and world changing, SO…
      • v11/12 live holy lives, set apart for God’s use
      • v13/14 new heaven & earth: WITH GOD –

His patience means our salvation, so while we wait, prepare for His presence!
