Be Ready, The King is coming

“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!
