Awaiting The Lord's Return, We Say, ‘If No-One Joins Me, Still I Will Follow.’

Matthew 24:1-31
After the first two verses, concerned with the destruction of the temple, Jesus speaks of ‘the sign of His coming and of the end of the age’(3). There will be times of testing (9,21). We must take care not to be drawn away from Him (4,23-24). Beyond the time of testing, there will be the return of the Lord (29-30). The events of our day are not without significance. They are signs of His coming. We are to prepare ourselves for His return. We must live as servants of the Gospel (14). This will not be easy. There will always be opposition. Current affairs may be confusing, but we must look beyond all this to ‘the momentous event’: ‘the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory’(30). Awaiting the Lord's return, we say, ‘If no-one joins me, still I will follow’(Mission Praise, 272).
