Be Prepared Always – Matthew 24:1-28

The sign of Jesus’ return and the end of the age in the world is told in Matthew 24:1-28. Jesus tells the disciples that many will try to deceive and claim to be the Christ. They will hear of wars and rumors of wars. Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famine and earthquakes. Christians will be persecuted and put to death. There will be many that turn away from their faith.

When times get difficult, many want to give in but it’s important to stay in the light. Here’s a video to give inspiration: Stay – Jeremy Camp.

Burdens can be heavy so the challenge is to continue to be disciplined and stay in the light. Let us take note and be prepared always. Discipline weighs only ounces compared to regret which weighs tons. Let us stand firm and put God’s will first in our life – in our relationships, in our families, and in our finances. This day with God, make it a part of your prayer to stay in the light. No matter what happens in life, God loves you and that is all that matters.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
