"When will it end?" This common question has been with humanity since the dawn of time.  When people ask Jesus, the Lord responds with two simple points of common sense:

  • Do not be deceived
  • Do not be afraid

Thus, we live each day as the precious gift it is, ready at a moment's notice to step from this life to the next.

He is our creator, our savior, our judge and our friend.  In simple and unassuming ways, he will meet us in our struggles through this life with the courage and conviction to continue in the toughest of times.  As our king he deserves our allegiance; yet he lays down his life that we might be saved.  We owe everything to Jesus Christ, our King!

In this passage of Luke's Gospel, Jesus focuses his time and attention in the Temple area.  This "house of prayer" is a place of teaching, reflection, insight and communion with God and one another.  Every time we step inside a church to pray we enter holy ground; may we frequently take time to encounter the Lord and grow as his sons and daughters.

Life happens.  Sometimes we can get caught up in the cycle of our routine, only to find that everything can change in the blink of an eye.  Jesus reminds his disciples that the Son of Man will appear when least expected - empowering us to live each day as if it is our last, taking nothing for granted as we keep our eyes fixed on the Lord.

The Lord offers a parable to illustrate what happens when we persistently turn away from God.  Perhaps there have been times in our lives when we know what to do, but we haven't done it; today offers us a fresh opportunity to draw near to Christ and - with his help - respond to the unique situations of our lives with in manner worthy of Jesus.
