"You too must stand ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. For where your treasure is , there will your heart be also. " Luke 12 : 39

At a recent memorial for a young girl taken tragically through illness to an early death, the minister reminded the young congregation that their friend was enjoying the fullness of life with the Lord in Heaven; her premature death was a sharp shock only to those who had loved and missed her. So with us,  we imagine our temporary life will outlast the Universe!  This story reminds us to be consciously aware of the temporary nature of all things,  even our most treasured possessions.   We are called to put our trust and faith in Jesus as our Saviour and Friend , who will bring us safely into His Kingdom.

Prayer

Lord we pray that we may be ready for the Call to leave our home here and follow you into your Kingdom. Let our lives mirror yours as we await your invitation. May the Lord hear our prayer. Amen
