Read Mark 13 today.

Much of the reading in this chapter is connected to either the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD, or the return of Christ. We know the former does not affect us directly. We cannot be sure whether or not the latter will do so. Therefore, what should we do?
In my opinion, this means we need to be preparing ourselves spiritually every day. Not just at Christmas and Easter. Not merely once a week. Not even every other day.
Every day. Today.
Mark 13:32-37 NLT
“However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. [33] And since you don’t know when that time will come, be on guard! Stay alert!
[34] “The coming of the Son of Man can be illustrated by the story of a man going on a long trip. When he left home, he gave each of his slaves instructions about the work they were to do, and he told the gatekeeper to watch for his return. [35] You, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know when the master of the household will return-in the evening, at midnight, before dawn, or at daybreak. [36] Don’t let him find you sleeping when he arrives without warning. [37] I say to you what I say to everyone: Watch for him!”
