This week’s Pastor to Person was written by Pastor Daniel Grant.
In Matt 24 Christ answers the very important question of what will it look like for the end of the age? He walks them through the signs and symptoms of what the end looks like. Matt 24:42 “42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.” Twice in this passage Jesus gives the apostles instructions that are SUPER relevant to us. He reminds us to watch and exhorts us to stay ready!
Matt 24:43-44 “But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” We are called to watch and to BE ready. It’s so very easy to get comfortable, relaxed and to think that Christ would NEVER come back in our day! That’s the same wrong-thinking of the people in Noah’s day – who had never seen a flood, were warned by Noah, and on the day it came didn’t enter the ark. Don’t just get ready beloved – stay ready!! This life is the warm-up lap for eternity, the full race is yet to come!!
