How To Be Ready For Christ’s Return – Luke 21:20-38

From my reading in Luke 21:20-38 in the One Year New Testament.

Watch Out! 

From the  warnings that we get from Jesus about the end times there is a primary application. Watch out…

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, like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth. Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21:34–36

We need to be waiting and ready for Jesus’ return.

Don’t get drunk.

Don’t be overly worried about details of this life.

Be ready because Jesus is coming when no one is expecting it.

Christ’s purpose for telling us some of the details in advance is not so that we can make a fancy chart or sell books on the subject.

Christ primary reason for warning us of the end time events was so that we would stay faithful to Jesus and be ready for his return! 

We are to pray that God would give us the strength to escape the coming horrors and preserver to the end and stand before Jesus!

Be faithful with the tasks that God has given you today.

Pray for strength to preserver. 

Be aware that he could come back at any moment!

Ps… If you have never repented of your sin, asked Jesus to forgive you and given your life to Jesus then that is a good idea too! Just saying!
