"When will it end?" This common question has been with humanity since the dawn of time.  When people ask Jesus, the Lord responds with two simple points of common sense:

  • Do not be deceived
  • Do not be afraid

Thus, we live each day as the precious gift it is, ready at a moment's notice to step from this life to the next.

He is our creator, our savior, our judge and our friend.  In simple and unassuming ways, he will meet us in our struggles through this life with the courage and conviction to continue in the toughest of times.  As our king he deserves our allegiance; yet he lays down his life that we might be saved.  We owe everything to Jesus Christ, our King!
