• Inevitable Destruction (vv 1-4)
• International Disorder (vv 5-8)
• Inescapable Difficulties (vv 9-13)
• Inspired Declarations (vv 14-27)
• Important Decisions (vv28-37)

Signs are indicators, not signals.
➢ Watch
➢ Watch

• To watch is not to run for the hills or to cower in a cave.

• Watching is not exactly the observing and cataloguing of everything resembling a "sign," or attributing the same to a validating scripture. It is just as much internal, a guarding of our soul's condition to assure our readiness to let go—and go—when He comes.

• Watchfulness—carefulness and attentiveness—stands in critical contrast to carelessness.

• Watchfulness is to assure readiness and preparation for eternal joy.
Matthew Henry on Mark 13:37:

Our great care must be, that, whenever our Lord comes, he may not find us secure, indulging in ease and sloth, mindless of our work and duty. He says to all, Watch, that you may be found in peace, without spot, and blameless.
