There is a purpose. Although there are men of God trying to figure out the secrets of God, we must be careful because Satan can use this to distract believers. We must not lose focus of our purpose. The Christian Mission is not to predict the date of Christ’s return, but to take God’s message of salvation to the world, starting with our own range of influence.
There will be signs that can be recognized as beginning of birth pains (Matthew 24:4-8, Luke 21:9) which will increase as the day approaches. It is not so important to know what day that is but it is important to “keep watch” and “be ready”. Matthew 24:42-44; Matthew 25:13. We are encouraged to be faithful servants and do the work that has been assigned to us. Matthew 24:45-51 continuing in Matthew 25.
I went on a worship trail of great praise songs and found this one for today.
Be Lifted Higher
Verses for Today:
"And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."
Lord, help to remain on course with your purpose: to share the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ. Help me to love others as You have loved.
