Four Reasons We’ve Stopped Caring that Jesus is Coming Back • December 6, 2020 • Pastor Chad Gilligan

For over 4000 years, people longed for the coming of the Messiah. Generation after generation, they waited anxiously for Him to come in power and offer salvation to mankind. Finally, after centuries of prophecies, the Messiah came as a baby, born of a virgin, laid in a manger, and forever changed the world as we know it. Today, we know Jesus will come again, but this time, we don’t seem to care. On Sunday, December 6, 2020, Pastor Chad Gilligan concluded his I Am sermon series, and gives us Four Reasons We Stopped Caring about Jesus’ return.
