Discussion Questions:

Read Mark 13:24-37 as a group.

In what ways will Jesus’ second coming be different from his first coming?

Who are Christ’s elect and why should the words of verse 27 fill them with hope?

Why is it important that Christians pay attention to signs pointing to the nearness of Christ’s return? 

What verse indicates that Christ’s words are reliable? What affect should that reminder have on a believer’s worldview and manner of living?

What illustration does Jesus give to call believers to constant vigilance in verses 32 to 37? What is the Master’s house that they have been entrusted to care for? How are you caring for it?

What are some practical ways that you can care better for Christ’s church in the challenging and difficult days ahead?

What does it mean to “stay awake”?

In what ways does obedience to Christ’s command to stay awake mean thinking and living differently than those who do not have eternal hope?
