The Motivations of the Heart

Luke 12:35,36,40 Be ready! Be fully dressed and have your lights shining. Be like servants who are waiting for their master to come home from a wedding party. The master comes and knocks, and the servants immediately open the door for him … So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at a time when you don’t expect him!”

Life just seems to bubble along, have you noticed? I have stuff that needs doing today, tomorrow, the next day … and so do you. So we get on with doing that stuff, until one day it comes to a dead stop. Then … what?

Today your heart will beat around one hundred thousand times. That’s thirty-nine and a half million times a year. So, given an average lifetime of around seventy-five years, that adds up to around three billion heartbeats – amazing thing, the heart.  

The question is – what happens when it stops?

Look around at the universe, the awesome majesty of a universe so vast that we don’t even know where it ends – a hundred billion stars in our galaxy alone, and trillions upon trillions of galaxies.

We don’t know how it began. Sure, there’s the big bang theory but how did the stuff that went “bang” get up there in the first place? And how is it that here we are on this fragile lump of rock just the right distance from the Sun to sustain the most incredible array of life?

What happens when your heart stops beating is such an important question – because when you get that figured, you can do what you need to do now to get ready for that moment.

Jesus put it this way:

Luke 12:35,36,40 Be ready! Be fully dressed and have your lights shining. Be like servants who are waiting for their master to come home from a wedding party. The master comes and knocks, and the servants immediately open the door for him … So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at a time when you don’t expect him!”

Are you ready? Because if Jesus is who He said He is, the time to believe is now.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
