‘Be Ready’ For Christ’s Return.

Luke 12:35-59
‘Be ready’ for Christ’s Return(40): Wait on the Lord (36; Isaiah 40:31). Stay ‘awake’(37), ‘your loins girded with truth’(35; Ephesians 6:14) - be real; be true to the Word of God. Keep ‘your lamps burning’(35). Our ‘lamp’ is Christ, ‘the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world’(Revelation 21:23; John 1:29). Be faithful(41-48): There can be no fruitfulness without faithfulness. God’s blessing is given to those who are faithful (42-43). With the promise of blessing, there is also the warning of judgment. Knowing the will of God and not doing it leads to judgment (47). Going Christ's way will not be easy(49-53): We must avoid the way of the ‘hypocrites’ who have no real knowledge of God (54-56), the legalists who know nothing of the Spirit of grace (57-59). Keep close to Christ: He will keep you - faithful and ready.
