Till All the Passengers Are Taken In

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
God's faithful promise I shall praise
on which I now rely:
In God I trust, and, trusting him,
the arm of flesh defy.
 —Psalm 56:4
Suggested tune: Morning Song (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
But about that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
—Matthew 24:36
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Sure then that day is near at hand, for iniquity never more abounded than in this age, in which lust grows hot, and love grows cold. When the elect are all converted, then Christ will come to judgement. As he that rows a ferry-boat, stays till all the passengers are taken in, and then rows away, so Christ stays till all the elect are gathered in, and then he will hasten away to judgement.
—Thomas Watson
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Grant me your salvation, Lord; and grant me patience and perseverance until the day when your salvation is consummated...
 
YOUR OWN PRAYERS
Allow the above to help guide your own confession, praise, thanksgiving, and/or petition.

THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
