A Short Study of Luke 21:28

“Look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)

The time of Christ’s second coming approaches, and it befits His disciples to think of that event and diligently prepare for it. But if we do not witness the descent of our Lord Jesus in the clouds, death will soon come and usher us into His presence; and before that we may be exposed to many and painful troubles, so that the direction given by our Lord to us as His disciples may be just suitable, “Then look up!” We shall have new toils, new trials, new temptations, and new troubles. But whenever they come, let us “look up!” Look not upon or within ourselves, but upon Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Look not to others for wisdom, understanding, peace, and comfort, but to His Word, for all these blessings come in believing and resting in Him. LOOK UP!
