Devotionals – Matthew 24:38-39 NIV
September 2, 2020
For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
After Noah warned the people about the end of the world and no one took heed, they continued with their normal lives. He Kept on building the ark as God instructed him.
Before the destruction of the world in the days of Noah, people did not know rain as we do today. God watered the earth from the ground so that rain did not come from above. You can therefore imagine that many people were wondering what noah was talking about rain.
When Noah finished the work, He entered the ark and then the rain came then, there was destruction as He had said. All the people were destroyed because they did not listen to Noah.
The same thing is happening in our time. Everybody is busy with their own things and there is less attention on the message that Jesus is coming again. Our today’s verse finishes by saying this is how the coming of Jesus will be.
It is important we remember that the coming of Jesus is closer than it was yesterday. Do not live as if you are here on earth permanently. You are temporarily here because we have our permanent home in heaven.
As you continue with life. Keep this in your mind and alway remain in touch in Jesus continually by walking in the Spirit in Jesus name.
Lord, help me not to be caught up in the things of this world to forget that one day you’ll come for the church. Teach me to number my days in Jesus name. AMEN
