Foundation scripture Luke 12:40
Luke 12:40 (New Living Translation)
40 You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.”
The great need of every Christian is to be ready to face Jesus at anytime. The battle oftentimes is not against sin or difficulties or circumstances, but being so absorbed in our own work that we are not prepared to meet Jesus.
Jesus rarely comes where we expect Him; He appears where we least expect Him, and always in the most illogical connections. We have to realize that it is not always service that matters…what does matter is having that intense spiritual reality of expecting Jesus at every turn! Grounding ourselves in this reality helps us maintain that childlike wonder the Lord wants us to have. If we are going to be ready for Jesus we have to stop using religion as a higher form of culture and be spiritually real!
If you are constantly looking to Jesus you will not be popular with this current religious age. You will often be called impractical and out of touch with earthly reality. However when Jesus Christ returns, whether it is in the darkness of night or the heat of the day, you will be the one who is ready!
Be Ready my dear friends!
Stay in the Word and meditate often!
