Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “Preparing for the Long Haul” based on Matthew 24:36-44 for The First Sunday of Advent on December 1, 2013. Jesus uses the disciples’ questions to train them to know how to wait in a world in which some presume they can read the signs of the time. Jesus is preparing his disciples for the long haul. The Gospel means that the future has invaded the present, endurance and waiting are the way of the followers of Jesus between the first and second advents.
