37“When the Son of Man greturns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day.38In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat.39People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes.

40“Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left.41Two women will be grinding flour at the mill; one will be taken, the other left.

42“So you, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming.43Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would keep watch and not permit his house to be broken into.44You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.

45“A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them.46If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward.47I tell you the truth, the master will put that servant in charge of all he owns.48But what if the servant is evil and thinks, ‘My master won’t be back for a while,’49and he begins beating the other servants, partying, and getting drunk?50The master will return unannounced and unexpected,51and he will cut the servant to pieces and assign him a place with the hhypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

The message is pretty clear: be ready.  I know Jesus is talking about the end of the world, but I think he is also talking about the end of our personal lives.  Or maybe just each and every day of our lives.  Jesus could walk into your life right this minute.  Are you ready?

Lord, I’m not ready for you today, not today.  I am a little down and out instead of thankful.  I’m seeing the waves instead of You.  I’m drowning.  Sorry Lord.  Please help me. Beginner’s Online Bible Study *obbs*
