Luke 17:20-37

September 17, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

“If you cling to your life, you will lose it, and if you let your life go, you will save it. 34 That night two people will be asleep in one bed; one will be taken, the other left. 35 Two women will be grinding flour together at the mill; one will be taken, the other left.[e]v. 33-35

Jesus is coming back.  When, no-one knows the exact time but, but if he came today, would you be ready?  Here are some thoughts from the NLT Life Application Study Bible,

Life will be going on as usual on the day Christ returns.  No warning will sound.  Most people will be going about their everyday tasks, indifferent to the demands of God.  They will be as surprised by Christ’s return as the people in Noah’s day were by the Flood. (Genesis 6-8) or the people in Lot’s day by the destruction of Sodom (Genesis 19).  We don’t know the time of Christ’s return, but we do know that He is coming.  He may come today, tomorrow, or centuries in the future.  Whenever Christ comes, we must be morally and spiritually ready.  Live as Jesus were returning today.

When I read this I can’t help but think of this song and how it impacted me as an 18 year old soaking up and discovering what it truly meant to be a Christ Follower.  Going a little old school but the message and words are so powerful!
