Light for My Path Daily Devotion
And as he sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign when all these things are about to be accomplished?” And Jesus began to say to them, “See that no one leads you astray. Many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he!’ and they will lead many astray. And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. This must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. These are but the beginning of the birth pains. (Mark 13:3-8 ESV)
Hymn ELH 99:1,6 The Advent of Our King
The advent of our King
Our prayers must now employ,
And we must hymns of welcome sing
In strains of holy joy.
All glory to the Son,
Who comes to set us free,
With Father, Spirit, ever One,
Through all eternity.
Heavenly Father, as I see the signs Jesus spoke of, give me joy and strength and take away all fear, knowing that He is returning to take me to be with Him in Heaven. In His name I pray. Amen.
