In this passage of God’s Word, we see Jesus being asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God would come. This spurs Jesus to teach His disciples about His second coming, and gives us some really good insights onto what it will look like, as well as some actions steps for us to take:
1. Don’t get led astray by false teachings
Luke 17:23-25, 1 John 4:1, Matt. 7:15-20, 24:24,
2 Tim. 4:3-4, Col. 2:8, Jude 1:4, 1 Tim. 6:3-5
2. No one knows when Christ will return
Luke 17:26-30, Matt. 24:36, 42, Rev. 3:3, Mark 13:32-35, Acts 1:7, Matt. 25:13
3. Don’t get attached to this world
Luke 17:31-33, 21:34-36, John 14:1-3, Matt. 24:45-51, 1 John 2:15-17, Col. 3:1-3, James 4:4, Rom. 12:2
4. When Jesus returns, some will be taken while others are left behind
Luke 17:34-35, 1 Thess. 4:16-17, Rev. 22:12, Matt. 24:40-44
Reflection Questions

1. After reading and hearing about Jesus teaching His disciples about His second coming, does anything stick out? Did you learn anything new? What questions are you still wrestling with?
2. How do you think your life would change if you viewed everyday as the day that Christ could return?
3. At the heart of what Jesus taught His disciples about His second coming, is for them to remain ready for His return at all times. How well do you do at remaining ready? What could you do better?

Open Sorting Hour at the Foster Closet
Want to help out at the foster closet but can’t commit to helping regularly? That’s ok! Every Friday from 12:30-1:30 is an open sorting hour. If you’d like to help during the open sorting hour, please text Tammi Fisher at (216) 526-9974.
We believe that our faith grows best when we surround ourselves with other believers. That’s why we encourage everyone to be a part of one of our groups, where we can intentionally share our lives with one another. There is a Sunday School group meeting on Sunday mornings before Service at 9:30. Our small groups are also in the process of starting for the fall. If you would like to be a part of one, please reach out to Pastor Josh.
