CQOD: 03/02/06 -- MacDonald on the signs of His coming

Christian Quotation of the Day

March 2, 2006
Feast of Chad, Abbot of Lastingham, Bishop of Lichfield, Missionary, 672
    Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
    -- Matthew 24:44 (ESV)

    Do those who say, “Lo here, or lo there, are the signs of His coming,” think to be too keen for Him, and spy His approach? When He tells them to watch lest He find them neglecting their work, they stare this way and that, and watch lest He should succeed in coming like a thief!
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), “The Word of Jesus on Prayer,” Unspoken Sermons, Second Series [1885]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I should always be prepared to receive you.
