Last part: We must prepare for Jesusí return

Mark chapter 13

Be ready!

Verses 32-37

The *disciples wanted to know when these things would happen. But only God the Father knows the answer to that question. Even Jesus did not know it. But he told the *disciples what they should do. They should be ready.

Before a master leaves his house, he speaks to his servants. He gives authority to each servant. Then the servant will be able to do his work. He tells them that they must watch carefully. They watch for anyone who may try to rob the house. And they watch for the masterís return.

Soon Jesus would leave the *disciples. He was giving them authority to do Godís work. And Jesus told them that he would return. So they must be ready for his return. They must do his work. They must use his authority well. They must be good and careful servants of God. They must not be lazy, because Jesus will return.

Next part: An expensive gift for Jesus
