Lesson title: As the thief in the night (1)
Theme: “Jesus wants us to be watching and waiting for His return”
Text: Matthew 24: 37, “But as the days of Noah were, so also will be the coming of the so son of man be”
Life Application ;
Have we ever heard the term “the last days?” What it means is the period of time just before Jesus returns for His people. When he returns, we will forever be with Him.
He told us a lot of things about His return, but He didn’t tell us the day He would be returning or what time He was going to come. He wants us to be watching and waiting for His return.
But what He did tell us was that there would be certain things happening all around us in our world that would tell us that His return was very close.
One of the things that He told us was that, the time just before He would come would be a lot like the time just before the great flood when God saved Noah and his family in the ark.
First of all, everyone just kept on going about life as if nothing was going to happen. They kept on eating, drinking and getting married with no concern for God or the future.
It took Noah 120 years to build the ark and all during that time Noah preached about the coming flood. But no one would listen; they just laugh at Noah and believe that the world just go on like it always has. So they rejected Noah and God.
Beloved, have you rejected God…..?
The lesson continues tomorrow.
