“You can’t make this up. In one abnormal afternoon, Jesus paid my taxes. And...he did it by telling me to go fishing and the first fish I caught would have my tax payment inside its mouth. And then crazy thing happened...I went fishing and the first fish I caught had my tax payment inside its mouth!”
Martin Luther once said there were two days on his calendar, this day and the Last Day. Why? Because Luther knew the simple truth the Thessalonians knew and that we all know - that the Last Day will come like a thief in the night. Which doesn’t mean Jesus will come at night, but only this: no one can see his coming. No one can look out the window and say, “Look, Jesus is a block away.” Or at the calendar, “Only five more days.” No, he’ll come unexpectedly. No one can predict it.
I’m going out on a limb, but my guess is that many of the people here today have little hands-on experience with a garden.
