The message was titled, Old Man Take a Look at My Life. John the Baptist preached a message calling the children back to the fathers, and the fathers back to the children. There was a gap or division in the first century, much as there is today. A gap between young and old – rich and poor – Gentile and Jew – men and women. John preached Jesus as the gap closer, and He still is.

So, we see that part of getting ready for the return of Christ is to not only have a right heart with God but also be in right relationship with people.
