Day 29 – Reassurance in Jesus
Matthew 24:32-35 (ESV)
“From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”
I love the phrase, “when you see all these things, he (Jesus) is near! When you see all these alarming things: earthquakes, wars, trouble, tragedy … Jesus is near!” and the last phrase, “Even if heaven and earth pass away, Jesus’ words of truth will not!” What reassurance we have in Jesus!
