That day will be sprung upon you suddenly, like a trap
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Watch yourselves, or your hearts will be coarsened with debauchery and drunkenness and the cares of life, and that day will be sprung on you suddenly, like a trap. For it will come down on every living man on the face of the earth. Stay awake, praying at all times for the strength to survive all that is going to happen, and to stand with confidence before the Son of Man.’

– Luke 21:34-36

Thought for the day

‘To stand with confidence before the Son of Man’. How can I prepare myself this Advent to stand before God with a clean heart? What do I need to put right, clean up and mend?

Pray with Missio

Today we pray for the people of Timor-Leste and the missionaries that accompany them. We pray especially for the children: may they have a bright future, knowing that God loves each one of them.
