Luke 21:19 By standing firm you will gain life.
This chapter starts with a widow who gives all. It's not easy, but it's right. Then we see the prophecy of those who will stand before councils and will be hated by all men. It won't be easy, but God will provide. Then there are those who are just facing the day to day anxieties...
34 “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap.
There is the warning, and ultimately a reminder that we will stand before the son of Man.
Be careful. Be on watch. But don't worry, just stand firm. Life is waiting.
