Daily Bible Reading: Luke 17:20 – 37
Verse of the Day: Luke 17:26 – “And as it came to pass in the days of Noah, even so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.”
When Jesus was asked about when the Kingdom of God would come (meaning the Day of the Lord), Jesus goes into statements about this event. Many have tried to attach dates and eras to these events. A very important statement in this passage is our verse today.
The people in the days of Noah (see Gen. 6:5-13) paid very little attention to God and faced His judgment because of that. Jesus says that it will be the same preceding the return of the King.
As we look at the world around us, does it recognize God? Is there a concern for the things of God? Or, is it much like the “days of Noah?”
Prayer: Jesus, as we consider Your words today, let us muse over the way our world (and ourselves) meet the description that You give. Help us to focus upon God and His ways. Help us to be ready to meet Your return. Amen.
