Matthew 24:42

THE OUTWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Jesus’ Return

Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.

The Bible tells us on several occasions that we are to be on the alert. The overwhelming majority of these “calls to alertness” refer to the same thing. Can you guess what it is? Matthew 24:42 is one of the many alert verses. Here Jesus charges us, Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. I am not sure about you, but I would suggest that the vast majority of Christians do not give the slightest, daily attention, much less are on “red alert” for the second coming of Christ. It’s easy enough after almost 2,000 years since Jesus left, to get complacent or distracted about being on the alert for the second coming of Christ. At least today, take some time to think about it.
