  “Ready or not, here I come!”        


          Text: Luke 12:35-59

Be Ready

      The King is coming

                Be prepared for His return

                Anticipate His return

                Be on the alert

                Do not be caught unprepared

                     (see Luke 12:35-40)


The Parable of the slaves

      The Faithful Slave     (Luke 12:41-44)

                Put in charge

                Cares for others

                Conscientiously Obedient
                Result:  Placed in charge of everything


      The Malicious Slave     (Luke 12:45-46)

                Put in charge

                Mistreats the other slaves

                Willfully abusive

                Result: Cut in pieces and assigned a place with unbelievers


      The Frivolous Slave     (Luke 12:47)

                Knew the expectations of the master

                Did not do the master’s will

                Was rebellious and disobedient

                Result: He will receive many lashes


      The Ignorant Slave     (Luke 12:48a)

                Did NOT know the expectations of the master

                Acted poorly, even worthy of being flogged

                Was indifferent and distracted

                Result:  He will receive a few lashes


The Lesson of the Parable    (Luke 12:48)

      Everyone will give an account

     Greater accountability is required for
          those with greater knowledge


     Greater expectations are upon

         those given greater responsibilities



“I have come to reign fire on the earth”

                  (Luke 12:49-53)


Lesson for Us…   (Luke 12:54-59)


  Consider the signs of our times!

       Do what is right and just 
because you know He will return!


       He will initiate a time of 
     accounting and judgment!
