Monday April 3rd Matthew 24 : 34-35
Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
Just a couple of days before Jesus was arrested, he sat with his friends on the Mount of Olives. As they looked out across Jerusalem, he spoke about the future.
In their lifetime, Jerusalem would be destroyed, its sacred treasures looted and its people scattered. It would be a time of great confusion when it would be easy to be overwhelmed by fear -- and this would be just the beginning of all that would happen before he would be revealed in glory. But although he spoke of troubled times, at the heart of his message to his friends was this: that they should hold on to him, the true Messiah, whose words could be trusted always.
Our world, too, sometimes feels like a frightening and uncertain place. We too live in "interesting times", when our courage and faith may be tested. And the same Jesus speaks to us, saying "Hold on to me".

Lord Jesus, help us to fix our eyes on you, the author and perfecter of our faith. Help us to hold fast to you, whatever comes, trusting in your unfailing promises. And as you fill our gaze, please sustain us and give us your peace.
