In these passages, Jesus tells His disciples that people must be prepared for His return to Earth. Jesus said, “Be on guard that your hearts may not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life.”
I must be prepared for Jesus’ return. My daily focus must not be on the world and its troubles or on the challenges in my own life. Rather, I must keep my focus on the Kingdom of God. God will keep my life in order if I focus on God and strive to walk rightly before Him. The Bible says, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and the rest will be given you as well.”
I must keep my personal life in order, living rightly. As Jesus said, I must not drink to excess. Drinking to excess takes away my strength and motivation to obey God. I must have the strength and motivation to give up my sinful life. If I do that, I will receive much more than I gave up.
