Daily Word Of God

Matthew 17:10-13

As they came down from the mountain the disciples put this question to Jesus, ‘Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?’

He replied, ‘Elijah is indeed coming, and he will set everything right again; however, I tell you that Elijah has come already and they did not recognise him but treated him as they pleased; and the Son of man will suffer similarly at their hands.’ Then the disciples understood that he was speaking of John the Baptist.

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • John the Baptist prepared the way for Christ’s coming by preaching a baptism of repentance and renewal.


  • As watchful followers of Christ, we must also prepare for the Lord’s second coming by turning away from sin and from anything that is not in accordance with His Will.


  • Are you eager to do God’s Will and thus be well prepared to receive Him when He comes again in His glory?
