    </div><div> *GET READY FOR CHRIST’S RETURN*</div><div>
    </div><div>_It is advisable you read the text first_</div><div>
    </div><div>📜TEXT:LUKE 12:32-48📜</div><div>Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.</div><div>33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.</div><div>34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.</div><div>35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;</div><div>36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.</div><div>37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.</div><div>38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.</div><div>39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.</div><div>40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.</div><div>41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?</div><div>42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?</div><div>43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.</div><div>44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.</div><div>45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;</div><div>46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.</div><div>47 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.</div><div>48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.</div><div>
    </div><div>🔑📖KEY VERSE: _*”And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately” (LUKE 12:36).*_</div><div>
    </div><div>Each time a conversation, even among believers, gets to the direction of the return of Jesus Christ, many people are either dismissive, amused or unconcerned because they think it is unlikely; or if it would happen, it would be in the distant future. In the process, they miss the essential lesson of ensuring that the Lord’s coming does not meet them unprepared.</div><div>
    </div><div>Jesus Christ Himself assures His disciples that the Almighty God delights in reserving a place in heaven for each of them. Believers should, therefore, not misplace their priorities, but jettison anything, including love of money, that could hinder their love, obedience and service to the Lord. They must allow their lives to shine brightly, while living in constant expectation of the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ, so that irrespective of when it occurs, they would be ready. In fact, He would come without fanfare and when most people do not expect Him.</div><div>
    </div><div>Great blessings await those He will meet on His return, as they faithfully engage in His service. But those who fail to prepare for His coming and are consumed by the rat race, revelry and oppressive activities of the world, would suffer eternal separation from Him. Those who are ignorant of His advent will face punishment, while those who knew but refused to get themselves ready, will face a more severe punishment.</div><div>
    </div><div>This is a timely warning, especially in our present age, when all talks about the return of Jesus Christ seem like fables to many. To be ready, you must not condone even the slightest sin in your life, but shun all evil trappings and distractions of the world. You must diligently follow the Lord and faithfully engage in the service of winning and preparing souls for heaven. Jesus is coming very soon.</div><div>

    </div><div> *MEDITATION*</div><div>
    </div><div>*The blessings in watchfulness*</div><div>
    </div><div>1. There are some sets of people that Jesus called “blessed” in separate verses in the text. Who are those people? Are you among them? If not, why not?🤷‍♂️</div><div>2. What is the guarantee that Jesus wants you in particular to be among those who will live with Him in heaven?, v32. Do you trust what Jesus said in v32👏</div><div>3. What are the things Jesus expects those who are serious with heaven to do? vv31,35,40. Which one of these can you mark yourself as faithfully doing?🤔</div><div>4. “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be”, v34. “For where your heart is, there will your treasure be”. How do these statements apply to you? Do you have an earthly treasure you treasure more than your going to heaven?, v33. Or, are there pursuits or treasures so dear to you that you wish Jesus could hold on for now? Can you weigh yourself on the balance?🤔</div><div>5. There are two definite things that Jesus promised to do to those who take His coming seriously and they show how He takes such people seriously. What are they? vv37,42. Imagine how much Jesus values those people. Are you among them?🤔</div><div>6. Check the two groups of careless Christians at the coming of Christ in vv 45-48. Which of the groups do you belong to? Hopefully none❎</div><div>7. Do you consciously or unconsciously have a mindset or perception as to when Jesus will likely come? Check v40 to see if you are thinking right✅</div><div>
    </div><div>*Prayer points*</div><div>Lord, blow up all kind of mindset and self deception in my heart that thinks His coming may not be now🙏</div><div>Lord, I ask for that state of heart that will always be watchful for your coming🙏</div><div>Lord, demolish everything that may stand between me and readiness for your coming🙏</div><div>Lord, help all your children to see your imminent coming as real and help us to take your word seriously🙏</div><div>
