Matthew Week 2: Day 4
Pray and read
Pray that God would use his word to shape you mind, affect your heart and change your actions. Read Matthew 24:36-51.
What similarities are there in people’s attitudes in the days of Noah and the coming of the Son of Man?
How are the disciples to respond to the story of the thief in the night? How are they to act while they wait?
Jesus makes it clear that no one can know or predict the day or hour of the coming of the Son of Man. However his disciples are to be ready for his coming, and serve his people faithfully in the meantime.
What does this readiness look like at a personal level? How should it shape the way we serve and share the gospel with others?
