As Jesus came to the city and observed it, he wept over it. He said, “If only you knew on this of all days the things that lead to peace. But now they are hidden from your eyes. The time will come when your enemies will build fortifications around you, encircle you, and attack you from all sides. They will crush you completely, you and the people within you. They won’t leave one stone on top of another within you, because you didn’t recognize the time of your gracious visit from God.” (Luke 19:41-44, CEB)
There will come a time when your enemies will build fortifications around you and attack you from all sides. They will crush you and completely destroy you because you didn’t recognize the time God visited you graciously.
Jesus tells them quite plainly here that God graciously visited them and they missed it. And because they missed it they are going to be destroyed.
But my wonder is, would we have missed it? Or did we miss it?
Would we know if God graciously visited us?
We need to be aware and always looking for God.
God comes in the stranger and the wanderer.
Love all, and welcome all.
Love Out Loud.
Loving People. Loving God.
