It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Luke 12:32-40

New International Version
12:32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

12:33 Sell your possessions, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.

12:34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

12:35 “Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit;

12:36 be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks.

12:37 Blessed are those slaves whom the master finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them.

12:38 If he comes during the middle of the night, or near dawn, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.

12:39 “But know this: if the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.

12:40 You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.”

    If I have the pleasure to give someone, something, that shows my love, towards that someone….In this passage we read “The Father`s good pleasure to give us the kingdom;”
    This is showing His great love for us: He has already given us His kingdom but we have to treasure it; “Be dressed for it.” We have to work for it “Keep our lamps lit.”

    We nurture our body, we nourish it, we take care of it, but, what about our soul? I think that this is, what the Lord is trying to tell me.

    We say we love God, but do we really love Him? Whom I love, I want to be with,I want to share my life with, I want to do everything with, so I have to work and be on the look out; for not to find a devil out there and rob whom i love, in the middle of the night or in an unexpected hour.

    May the Lord keep us in His spirit and fill us with His grace so that when He comes back from the banquet we will be ready to open the door of our heart for Him.
