Before the Son of Man

Re: Verse reading – Luke 21:5-24 (day seven) 
Where does life lead?  Believers and secular people have very different answers.  Jesus believed that life leads toward an accounting with God.  For everyone!  “An hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs shall hear His voice, and shall come forth; those who did the good to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil to resurrection of judgment.”  (John 5:28-29)  Paul followed his Lord in this conviction.  “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body. . .whether good or bad.”  (2 Corinthians 5:10)  As we read the words of Christ in Luke 21, (see v 36) let us examine our hearts for a secure grip on this truth.  Those have this vision of the future discover great strength and moral motivation for the present hour.  Knowing that we will stand before the Son helps us to stand for Him now.
