Being Prepared

Passage: Isaiah 1:10-20, Luke 12:22-40
Service Type:

Isaiah notes that the people of God are trusting in rituals to save them, when God looks for repentance in their hearts.  In Luke we have seemingly contradictory advice:  don’t worry about the future, but be prepared.  A closer reading says don’t worry about the physical needs, but be prepared on the spiritual level for Christ to return.  Both passages remind us that God is looking a heart turned toward the Lord.

If we keep our hearts open to God, God will make sure everything else will fall in place.
