*** Summarize this week’s message from the Pastor’s Sermon Notes. ***

Passage: Matthew 24:36-44

1.  Why do you think God continues to keep the day of His return a secret even from the angels?

2.  How does one prepare for Christ’s return, as He tells us to do in verse 44?

3.  Noah did not try to hide his boat, but built in openly.  What is the lesson in this for us today?

4.  Who is the “goodman of the house” spoken of in verse 43?  Why would he want to upset God’s plans?

5.  Application:  Who would you NOT want to see left behind at the Rapture?  What are you doing about it?

6.  Application:  In verse 38, we see people intent on living their own lives without God, and the expected outcome.  Have you let this life take up so much of your time that you neglect the things of God?  What might you need to let go of to make more time for God?
