THE DAY OF THE LORD
To read today: Luke 17:20-35
The great day of the LORD is near — near and coming quickly. The cry on the day of the LORD is bitter; the Mighty Warrior shouts his battle cry.
The “day of the Lord” is a term used in the Old Testament to describe the time of God’s judgment and wrath. This day is described as a time of darkness, destruction, and terror for those who have turned away from God. Jesus’ description of this day in Luke 17 states that “the Kingdom of God is in our midst.” As we consider the “day of the Lord, let us ask ourselves if we are living in such a way that we will be found faithful when that day comes.
While we don’t know when the day of the Lord will occur or what it will bring, for those of us who follow Jesus, we can trust that we are on the side of victory. Let us stay strong in our faith and persevere, sharing the good news with others so they can share in our collective joy.
Final Thought: What is one practical way that you can share the hope of Jesus to someone in your life?
