Since the Day of the Lord is a future reality, we should live today by faith in Jesus Christ in light of this future day.
1. The Day of the Lord is coming.
“Being spiritually prepared for the return of Christ does not involve date-setting, clock-watching, or sign-seeking. God has chosen not to reveal the specific time of end-time events so that all believers will live in constant anticipation of them.”—John MacArthur
2. God’s people must be ready for the Day of the Lord.
3. God’s people will be delivered from the Day of the Lord.
“Encouragement is what the Gospel feels like as it moves from one believer to another.”—Ray Ortlund
