February 4

today's reading: Matthew 24:1-35

Sign of the Times
When you see the twigs get tender and the leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door." vs:32-3

The Lord Jesus did not want us to be unprepared for the future.
He gave us many clues to watch for; things that would allow believers to gear up for the end of the age.
What do we really need to do to 'gear up' for what is to come? 
It won't do any good to have a large bank account, a nice home, new cars, to be able to climb mountains, have great computer skills, achieve any kind of greatness in the eyes of others. 
None of these things will have any value at the end of the age. 
A heart yielded to God. 
A mind filled with His truth and the treasure of His Word. 
A life surrendered to Him. 
We don't know WHEN these things will come......but believing that they WILL COME...
