Advent Day 3

Mark 13:33-37
Be on guard! Be alert!
 You do not know when that time will come. 34 It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch. 35 “Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. 36 If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37 What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’”

5 ways to be watchful

1. Be formed through your prayer life. Pray the Psalms, pray Scripture daily.

2. Ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit daily.

3. Weekly gather with the church for worship.

4. Be active in the things God has made you responsible for and steward over.

5. The things that grab your attention and cause you to struggle, walk away from them.
