Jan 30 Devotion: The Command to Watch!

Mark 13:34-37-  For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

 35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

 36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

 37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

*Three times in these verses Jesus exhorts them to “watch” for His return.
