Jesus told his disciples a parable. “Consider the fig tree and all the other trees. When their buds burst open, you see for yourselves and know that summer is now near; in the same way, when you see these things happening, know that the Kingdom of God is near. Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”
His words are eternal and they give us eternal life. If you feed on these words as you feed on the fig you will be filled with the word of the Lord. We do not know the time and place of the end of this world and the reign of the Kingdom of God, but will be sent signs and wonders from the Lord. Are you ready?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I want to be fed with the word of life that comes only from you. Help me to open my heart and mind to your words that I may have eternal life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Give glory and eternal praise to him!
