Deuteronomy 19-21, Mark 13:21-37 , Key, Verse: Mark 13:37
Deadlines are good. They can help us plan-—or they, can make us panic. At the beginning of a
semester, For example, students are given a variety of deadlines’. Some students plan well,
budget their time and meet the deadlines.
On the other hand, there are those who say, “I work better under pressure.” They ignore the
deadlines until panic sets in; Then they do work under pressure—but not necessarily better.
How would a student handle it if an assignment were given without a due date? The only due
date announced would be when the professor decided to call for the assignment. One would have
to be constantly prepared.
Professors do not typically give assignments without clear due dates, but Jesus did. He gave us
His work to do until He comes. Instead of a specific time, He said that it could be “in the
Evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn” (v. 35). His one-word summary
instruction was, “Watch!” (v. 37).
If you knew His deadline were today, would you be prepared or would you panic? It could be
today. Do you believe that? And are you prepared?
“God, help me to watch today and every day so I will be ready and watching when Jesus comes.
