1st Sunday of Advent
Reading I: Isaiah 63:16-17,19;64:2-7 II: 1 Corinthians 1:3-9
Mark 13:33-37

33 Be watchful! Be alert! You do not know when the time will come.
34 It is like a man travelling abroad. He leaves home and places his servants in charge, each with his work, and order the gatekeeper to be on the watch. .
35 Watch, therefore; you do not know when the lord of the house is coming, whether in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning. .
36 May he not come suddenly and find you sleeping. .
37 What I say to you, I say to all: "Watch!"

Interesting Details
One Main Point

Be watchful and do our duties. Jesus warns all to be watchful for his second coming by doing perfectly what he has put each of us "in charge."

  1. What are my duties that the Lord put me in charge?
  2. Am I doing the duties the Lord assign, or my own will?
  3. If the door keeper must watch 24 hours a day, how perfectly am I expected to perform my duty for the Lord?
