Are You Ready?
We all have areas of our lives that are not fully aligned with God’s Word – whether they be patterns of thought, habitual behaviour, or ‘sins of omission’ – things we know we ought to do, but are not doing. It’s not that we don’t want to change as such, it’s more that we tend to think that there’s plenty of time and we’ll get around to it before too long. The Bible has a very different view on that; James 4:14 says ‘What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then disappears.’ And this is why Jesus’ words in Luke 12:35-48 are so important. The gist of his message is this – stay ready, because you don’t know when I’m coming back! And remember, the day of his coming will be different for all of us because it is effectively the day we die (or the day he actually returns).
