Jotting to Jesus in Response to Matthew 24 (The Destruction of the Temple, The Signs of the Times, The Great Tribulation, & The Faithful/Evil Servant)

I’ve recently started working my way through the gospel of Matthew using the SOAP method (read the Scripture, Observe what is happening, Apply the scripture to my life, & Pray). I was supposed to be on Matthew chapter 23 today, but flipped forward by accident to chapter 24, & realized this wasn’t a coincidence when I saw the titles + given the climate of Afghanistan right now. I’d encourage you to read Matthew 24 for yourself, but below are a few verses that stood out to me this morning.

When you stop & think about it, we’re on borrowed time. Personally, we’re on borrowed time with our individual lives. Generationally, we’re on borrowed time with making the gospel known before the final coming of Jesus Christ. He’s fulfilled all other promises, & He’s not going to let us down on the promise of coming back. We’ve been charged with making the gospel known & lived out in the meantime, yet some of us (myself included) have fallen into seasons of sleepiness. We’ve become lukewarm, complacent, & our bones are becoming dry.

This morning’s scripture “accident” was not a coincidence. I was meant to read Matthew 24 after falling asleep last night (in the comfort of my American home that’s not under direct physical warfare) to the news of the war on Christianity in Afghanistan. Perhaps you’re meant to read it, too. & when you get to the “prayer” component of the SOAP method, here’s my jot to Jesus from this morning if you find yourself overwhelmed/at a loss for words:

~ “There is freedom in the Name, healing in the Name. There is power in the Name, salvation in the Name. There is life in the Name, there is no other name but Jesus! Jesus!” 💓🙌🏻✝️
