Luke 21:34-38 ESV: [34] “But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. [35] For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. [36] But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” [37] And every day he was teaching in the temple, but at night he went out and lodged on the mount called Olivet. [38] And early in the morning all the people came to him in the temple to hear him. 

Jesus doesn’t want any of us to be surprised and trapped by upcoming events.  So, He has warned us about what we can expect, and then tells us how those who actually hear His warning respond.

How do we live?

  • Watch ourselves.
  • Stay awake at all times.
