May 7 – Matthew 24
LOOK: The disciples asked Jesus how they would know when the end of days would come. Jesus talks about the signs that the end would be coming including wars and natural disasters. Jesus also talked about the general decline in the genuine faith of His followers. Jesus teaches that no one knows the day or hour of Christ’s return.
LISTEN: It must have been an interesting moment of teaching when the disciples finally realize that Jesus knew the future and what would unfold. I imagine that everyone there was rapt with attention, listening to every word. We would all like to know the details of the future partly because we are prone to be self absorbed at times. However, it is a natural curiosity to wonder about the future. God chose to tell us what we needed to know and not every detail or timeframe.
LEARN: One thing you should know about your future is where you will be spending it. Have you secured your reservation for the future?
