January 12, 2017: SOAP #2597: Genesis 29-30; Luke 12

Scripture: Luke (NIV) 12:39 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.
40 You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

Observation: We should expect an unexpected return of Jesus. We must stay ready.

Application: People prepare for their day, not in any way thinking that this will be their last day. Jesus may not come for everyone, but their unexpected death will usher them into His presence. While He may not come for His church today, the Bible tells me I have no promise of a tomorrow.

Prayer: Holy Spirit, keep reminding me that living in my temporary home may soon come to an end. Keep it as a dominant thought in my mind. Amen
