Therefore we must prepare; clean our linen and oil our lamps. We can be washed in the precious blood of Our Lord Jesus and have faith in our hearts (lamps). But the first step is to repent! The Lord draws ever near! Amen.

Abound in love…just as we abound in love for you. (12)

Gospel: Luke 21: 25-28, 34-36
Then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in cloud’ with power and great glory. (27)
Are we ready for that day? Be on guard, so that we may not be lost in drunkenness and dissipation. (34) The moral values of our current times are at an all-time low. Therefore we must be on constant guard duty with the whole armor of God always worn. (Eph 6:10-20) Be alert and pray at all times. (36)
