“See, your house is left to you. And I tell you, you will not see me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.’” Luke 13:35
Jesus warns those who listen that they are on the wrong path, not the way He has come to show them. He says that we will inherit what we do in disobedience if we don’t hear His teaching and turn back to God.
How often is this the case in our world? We think we are in charge and plunge ahead, thinking that God is behind us; when we should be behind God! Our selfish behavior will be judged in the last days, and we will be called to account for our actions.
Gracious God, help us to see the plan You have for us. Let us hear the lessons and follow the example Jesus gave for us. May our love for others show them we are all Your children. Amen.
