MacDonald: the signs of His coming

Friday, April 15, 2016
    [Jesus:] “So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”
    —Matthew 24:44 (NIV)
    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”, in Unspoken Sermons, Second Series, London: Longmans, Green, 1886, p. 61-62 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 24:44; 25:13; Mark 13:33-36; Luke 12:35-40; 1 Thess. 5:1-2; 2 Pet. 3:10; Rev. 16:15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I should always be prepared to receive you.
