APRIL 26 – HARD

4/26 Luke 21:7-15
“Teacher,” they asked, “when will all this take place? And will there be any sign ahead of time?” 8 He replied, “Don’t let anyone mislead you. For many will come in my name, claiming to be the Messiah and saying, ‘The time has come!’ But don’t believe them. 9 And when you hear of wars and insurrections, don’t panic. Yes, these things must come, but the end won’t follow immediately.” 10 Then he added, “Nations and kingdoms will proclaim war against each other. 11 There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and epidemics in many lands, and there will be terrifying things and great miraculous signs in the heavens. 12 “But before all this occurs, there will be a time of great persecution. You will be dragged into synagogues and prisons, and you will be accused before kings and governors of being my followers. 13 This will be your opportunity to tell them about me. 14 So don’t worry about how to answer the charges against you, 15 for I will give you the right words and such wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to reply!
HARD
When the end will come is not our responsibility. We are responsible for the life that we lead. We will be persecuted. We will be challenged. Serve the Lord. Proclaim the Gospel. Be faithful.
