2 Corinthians 6:1-2 As God's fellow workers we urge you not to receive God's grace in vain. 2 For he says, "In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you." I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation.


As we enter the month of November we also enter into that part of the church year which we refer to as the Season of End Time. During the last four Sundays of the church year we focus on events that teach us about the end of the world, judgment, heaven, and hell. We are reminded that there will be a day when God will bring all things to an end in this world, and what is temporal will be no more. But what is eternal will last forever and ever.
