Attending to Jesus in a World of Distractions

Series: RevelationScripture: Revelation 1:1-8
“We do not need a detailed forecast of future events which has to be laboriously deciphered, but (rather) a vision of Jesus Christ to cheer the faint and encourage the weary.  John’s desire is not to satisfy our curiosity about the future but to stimulate our faithfulness in the present.”—John Stott
“Fear God is a call that puts us in our place and all other fears, hopes, and admirations in their place.”—Derek Kidner
“If the churches came to understand that the greatest threat to faith today is not hedonism but distraction, perhaps they might begin to appeal anew to a frazzled digital generation. Christian leaders seem to think that they need more distraction to counter the distraction. Their services have degenerated into emotional spasms, their spaces drowned with light and noise and locked shut throughout the day, when their darkness and silence might actually draw those whose minds and souls have grown web-weary.”—Andrew Sullivan
