Be Watchful

Each day this week we will be sharing with you an excerpt from Alistair Begg’s “5 Bible Verses on the Second Coming of Christ”.

Mark 13:33“Be on guard, keep awake. For you do not know when the time will come.”

“In Jesus the kingdom has come; in the preaching of the Gospel, the kingdom is coming; and in the return of Jesus Christ, the kingdom will come in all of its fullness. …

“Let us be absolutely clear that we are ignorant about the time of Christ’s return. … We ought not to feel bad about that, because we’re in good company. Actually, we’re in a large company to begin with, because He says that ‘no one knows.’ …

“Our ignorance as to timing provides no excuse for being unprepared. Rather, it is our very ignorance of the timing of the event upon which the stress is actually laid by Jesus …. Ignorance, far from being an excuse, is to be an incentive.”
