When I read that I see the importance of being ready for everything and grounded in Christ. Things of this world are going to get crazier before they get better and we need to make sure we’re ready. Marriages are struggling because of all the craziness with jobs, money and selfishness. Loss of jobs is putting pressure on families and they are struggling to stay together. Greed and thinking more is better has lead us to an economy that is ridicules. Our separation from God and not opening His word to learn from is not working.
In verse 42 Jesus says, “So you, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming.”
We can’t try and fill our hurting with things of this world. I say refocus and listen to God in all areas of our lives.
In 1 Samuel, Samuel says in chapter 7 verse 3, “…If you are really serious about wanting to return to the Lord, get rid of your foreign gods and your images of Ashtoreth. Determine to obey only the Lord; then He will rescue you from the Philistines.”
Are we really serious about turning to God, or are we too busy to open His word and live His way? Are we really serious about turning to God, or are our physical desires more important to how we live? Are we really serious about turning to God, or are we more interested in doing it on our own? I say lets get serious and open God’s word and read it with the passion and love of God: Asking, seeking, and knocking to understand what we need to. Let’s give our lives to the Lord and thank Him for His Son and see how it is focusing on heaven and not ourselves.
Jesus says in Matthew 24:45, “A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them.”
Are we learning and growing everyday to be that faithful servant? We need to remember our strength is in the Lord, but we need to tap into it to feel the amazing peace. Work hard to live and act like Jesus. Amen
