Learning Focus 6:

Christ Will Come Again.

Read the content below before answering the key questions and completing the task. Remember you can discuss your answers with anyone at home!

 

Jesus Christ came to live among us in human form 2000 years ago. When he ascended into Heaven, he promised that he would come again, the Second Advent of Jesus Christ. The early Christians thought that he would come quite soon.

 

That is why Paul tells people to be ready. We do not know when Jesus Christ will come again, but we know he will, as he always keeps his promises. The advice to be prepared for

Jesus Christ’s coming can also apply to our meeting with him in Heaven when we die. Advent is another opportunity to be ready and waiting in expectation of meeting Jesus.

 

He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.

1 Cor 1: 8-9
