Are You Taking Time to Interpret the Times?

March 11th, 2007

“…why do you not know how to interpret the present time?”

(Luke 12:56)

Introduction: Jesus has expectations about how we interpret time (Lk. 12:54-56). But, what does this mean?

I. Old Testament Background –

A. 1 Chronicles 12:32 (Note the correlation between

______________ and _______ ).

B. Whereas Esther 1:13 may involve ____________.

C. ________ __ have always existed.

D. Jesus distinguishes between history and ________.

II. Why “The Present Time”?

A. ____________________________ (12:20)

B. ____________________________ (12:40)

C. ____________________________ (12:8,9)

Conclusion: Someone wrote the lyrics, “But there never seems to be enough time to do the things you want to do once you find them.” Redemptive living is a realization that what happens in history matters, and that what happens to you in history matters a great deal—because you matter to God.
