  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 17:26-37)
God's judgment is good news for those who are prepared to meet him. Their remuneration is God himself, the source of all reality, beauty, goodness, love and everlasting life. The people in Noah's time disregarded the Lord's caution of judgment. They missed the boat, factually! Whose boat are you taking – the world's boat to short-lived achievement and happiness or God's boat to an everlasting kingdom and ecstasy with him? Those whose hope is confidently anchored in heaven will not be dissatisfied when God's verdict comes. They celebrate even now that they will distinguish the Lord in his glory! Is our hope decisively placed in God and his kingdom? What does Jesus mean when he says that one person will be taken and an added left? God judges every person individually on how they have reacted to his mercy and cordial invitation to live as citizens of his kingdom. We simply cannot pass off personal blame to someone else, such as a close friend, spouse, or family member. No one can free his or her duty by substitute or by association with someone else. The good news is that God gives elegance and help to all who seek him with faith. The Lord Jesus gives us his Divine Spirit so that we may have the wisdom, help, and power we need to turn away from sin and to hug his way of love and holiness. The Lord's caution of judgment is a cause for disappointment for those who are not ready, but it brings joyful hope to those who enthusiastically expect the Lord's return in glory.
