On that day, the one who is on the housetop and whose goods are in the house must not go down to take them out; and likewise the one who is in the field must not turn back.You see Jesus knew that there are people who cling to this world, who consider this world their home. But just as my pastor Stu said, we should realize that our King is alive and that one day we will meet Him, or He will come and meet us. That's the beauty of Christianity, not only does God promise us eternal life, but He paves the way to Him. Only in Christianity do we have a God that is willing to go all the way to death so that we might be with Him. It's a privilege to follow Him by giving Him our lives. I think that's probably why Jesus followed up in Luke by saying this
Whoever seeks to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.
Amen. I hope you can rise to the challenge.
