No One Knows – God’s Word Today & Thoughts to Ponder
God’s Word Today:
Matthew 24: 36-39 NCV
No one knows when that day or time will be, not the angels in heaven, not even the Son. Only the Father knows. When the Son of Man comes, it will be like what happened during Noah’s time. In those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving their children to be married, until the day Noah entered the boat. They knew nothing about what was happening until the flood came and destroyed them. It will be the same when the Son of Man comes.
Thoughts to Ponder:
Jesus’ return is something that no one would be able to ascertain when.
As we continue to wait for his return a refinement of character is needed. Day by day, we have to face certain decisions molding us to what God wants us to be – a true loving follower of Christ.
By being able predict the coming of our Lord genuine change will not occur. Inherent in our human nature, we at most times are trying to put on a show.
God is not interested in a show. He intends that each of us would be transformed daily by giving our whole lives to him. In turn, we would not only be patient and prepared but also happy of his imminent return.
Help us to number our days well as we continue to be changed by You.
We pray that we’ll also actively tell others of this wonderful event.
Praise be to You!
In Jesus Name, Amen.
