What Jesus Did! 'Everyone Will See' — Mark 13:24-26

Friday, September 27, 2024

[Jesus continued,] "At that time, after the anguish of those days,

the sun will be darkened,
the moon will give no light,
the stars will fall from the sky,
and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.

Then everyone will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds with great power and glory."

— Mark 13:24-26 NLT

Key Thought

When Jesus returns in glory, no one will doubt his arrival. His return will be triumphant, glorious, and universally acknowledged. Won't that day be fantastic for those of us who eagerly await his return?

Today's Prayer

O Father all glorious, we look forward to the return of our Lord and Savior when your reign will be universally recognized and the faithful endurance of your spiritual children will be rewarded. In Jesus' name, I await that day with the joy of anticipation and praise. Amen.
