There is no room for business as usual in the Kingdom Life.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Luke 17:20-21 - Jesus replied, "The Kingdom of God can't be detected by visible signs. 21 You won't be able to say, 'Here it is!' or 'It's over there!' For the Kingdom of God is already among you."
Read - Luke 17:20–37
Jesus begins to instruct us on being prepared for His 2nd Coming. This is when the world as we know it will be no longer and the final decisions of every human will be taken into account. Being prepared for this day is vital. The only real preparation is to trust Christ as Lord and Savior.
Lord, thank you that the Kingdom of God is near me and help me to operate well within it.
The choice we make about Christ now can bring us from a Marred existence to a Mended one…in the here and now earthly life we live. That choice also has eternal consequences. To reject Christ is to be assigned to Meaningless Misery in eternity according to the Scriptures. To accept Christ as Lord and Savior is to be given the gift of Marveling in His Majesty forever. This is why there should be no ‘business as usual’ antics amongst the faithful.
