Jesus gives several repeated warnings in this chapter. Is there one that stands out to you today? Speculation about end-times can be a sidetrack off Christ’s path!
* God Above, Your word convicts us in thought, word and deed. Please refine us today.
“Therefore stay away – for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning – lest he come suddenly and find you asleep. And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake.”
This is a message for us today.
Jesus speaks to us, through all the ages.
There are some hard edges to this word from Jesus.
One is the warning against complacency.
Am I complacent with Jesus, with His word, with His Name, with living my life for Him?
Let us wake up, and spur one another on to good works, helping keep each other from spiritual sleep.
* Dear Father in Heaven,
You are coming back one day.
Please help us to stay awake.
Lord please revive the hearts of those around us.
