Again, Jesus gives us a warning that a time of great trial and persecution will come upon the people of the earth. We Christians need to be alert and faithful to our call of discipleship and not get caught up in drunkenness and immorality. Some people think that they can live an immoral life when they are young and then turn to God when they are old. This is a great mistake. They put themselves in danger of eternal damnation by their presumption on the grace of God.
34 Jesus said to his disciples: “Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy from carousing and drunkenness and the anxieties of daily life, and that day catch you by surprise 35 like a trap. For that day will assault everyone who lives on the face of the earth. 36 Be vigilant at all times and pray that you have the strength to escape the tribulations that are imminent and to stand before the Son of Man.”
think: Let us seek to be faithful to the Lord at this time so that when persecution comes we may stand strong and not deny our Lord.
