Abandoned – Luke 13:35

See, your house is abandoned to you. And I tell you, you will not see Me until the time comes when you say, ‘He who comes in the name of the Lord is the blessed One’!”

What a sad thought and pronouncement. Those whom God had set apart from the very beginning have so turned from God and angered Him that He must forsake them as He promised. It is hard to fathom. It must have broken Jesus heart to speak such. The patience of God does eventually come to an end; however, that does not mean that He will not be willing to forgive even those forsaken ones who eventually return to Him. Christ redeems those who return.

May we never be like these who rejected Jesus. May our eyes never be darkened to ur own prideful self-sufficiency. May the Holy Spirit protect us from the terror of self deception. Our only hope is You, Lord Jesus. We welcome you into our lives and abandon ourselves to You.
