Bible Text: Luke 21:5-36 |


Jesus prophesied the destruction of the Temple, which happened about 40 years later, in 70 A.D. This also brought to an end the thousands of years old practice of relating to God through animal sacrifices. God wants us to be right with Him not because of an animal sacrifice, but by faith in His Son. Today, our sacrifices are praise (even when life is hard), good deeds, sharing, and the overall sacrificial gift of our life (Hebrews 13:15-16; Romans 12:1). Jesus' prophesy concluded with a reminder to watch and pray for His return. Christ may come back before we wake up tomorrow.
