Daily Word Of God

Luke 21:24-28

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Great misery will descend on the land and wrath on this people. They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive to every pagan country; and Jerusalem will be trampled down by the pagans until the age of the pagans  is completely over.

‘There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; on earth nations in agony, bewildered by the clamour of the ocean and its waves; men dying of fear as they await  what menaces the world, for the powers of heaven will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand erect, hold your heads high, because your liberation is near at hand.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

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

  • Both believers and non-believers of Jesus will face the final judgement in the second coming of Jesus.


  • God’s Mercy will forgive the sins of those who are repentant. In being forgiven by God, we too need to atone (i.e. “make amends” and “repair” the harm and hurt we have caused) through God’s Justice.


  • Pray that our present life is already one of “repentance and atonement” so that our love for God begins in this life and continues into the next after we die.
