Luke 17

Jesus teaches about the end days and how quickly it will come as we wrap up Luke 17.  The kingdom of God is coming.  Are you ready?  Jesus tells the disciples to prepare.  He gives examples of Noah and Lot.  People in those days were about “business as usual”.  They had no idea the flood or firestorm was on its way.  So many people today don’t know that Jesus is coming again either.  He gives us this direction which we need to pay attention to: “If you grasp and cling to life on your terms, you’ll lose it, but if you let that life go, you’ll get life on God’s terms”.  Jesus was talking about the desire we have to hang on to the past rather than prepare for and embrace what is coming.  Oh how we are like that.  We hate change.  Bottom line is that we need to be ready.  We need to be prepared to meet Him.  He tells us that “one will be taken, the other left”.  Not everyone will enter eternity with Him on that last fateful day.  Are you ready?  Have you prepared to spend eternity with the Father through a relationship with His Son?  You can’t wait until things happen and opt in later.  It won’t work that way.  Now is the time to consider the future and stop clinging to life on your terms.  Now is the time for Jesus……
