Luke 21:25-38

“Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you unaware, 35 like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth. 36Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man.” v. 34-36

People get ready, Jesus is Coming!  When I was in college I was able to be a part of a mission team teaching and sharing Christ with the people of Jamaica.  It was an awesome experience and something I was able to be a part of for three years.  One year we used the song “People Get Ready, Jesus is Coming” by Chrystal Lewis as our theme for the year.  It is a very powerful song and when I read this passage it makes me think of this song

The NLT Life Application notes had this to say about these verses,

Jesus told the disciples to keep constant watch for His return.  Although nearly 2,000 years have passed since he spoke those words, their truth remains.  Christ is coming again, and we need to watch and be spiritually fit.  This means working faithfully at the tasks God has given us.  Don’t let your mind and spirit be dulled by careless living, drinking, of foolishly pursuing pleasure.  Don’t let the cares of this life weigh you down.  Be ready to move at God’s command.

I needed these word this morning!  Thank you Jesus!
