“Straighten Up!”

Luke 21: 28: “But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” How not to interpret this passage: ‘When things start going bad in the world, or for you personally, that means Jesus is coming back any moment.’ If that were true, Jesus has missed about 164, 000, 000, 000 chances to return in the last two thousand years. The true understanding is what the MDR has been telling us all week: If we see problems in the world, it’s not time to panic, or make like an ostrich and stick our head in the sand until Jesus comes back; but hold our heads high, look around us, and see who around us needs redemption, and let them know about it. Simple enough!
