Matthew 24:36-44 36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Observation: The point of knowing You are coming is to motivate me to live differently. This is not about living in such a way as to secure my salvation, because Jesus, You already took care of that. So Lord, about what am I to be “watchful”? I hear the Lord speaking to my heart, “Look for every opportunity to express my love, my message, my kingdom to others around you. They do not realize I am coming. Don’t hold back; be ready to partner with me…today.” Jesus is coming to break into someone’s circumstance…today!
Action: Today, God has set it up for me to encounter people in different circumstances that need to hear and experience God’s love for them. I wonder how many I will find. For everyone I find I will speak to them about God’s love for them.
Jesus, thank You for speaking to my heart. Fill me with Your Spirit so I am ready to take action on every opportunity I find.
