Luke 12:1 – 13:35
Don’t listen to the pharisees who tell you that salvation is found in obeying the law – Be prepared to stand firm in the gospel.
Don’t buy the lie that you need to store up riches and wealth in this world as your salvation – Be prepared to live differently to the world.
Don’t live life for this world and be consumed with worry – be prepared to live for the kingdom of God…
Don’t fall asleep at the wheel of life – be prepared for the Master’s return!
What is pretty cool about reading these passages (or any part of the gospels!) is the radical life Jesus is calling his disciples to live. He came to set aside a people for himself, a people who will bear fruit for the kingdom of God. A people who will be servants, rather than seeking to elevate themselves above others.
So, be prepared to live a life that is radically different to the world around you, knowing that it is the power of God that has saved you and it is the power of God’s spirit working in you, enabling you to persevere in living for Him.
