“Kingdom Readiness for Kingdom Rewards” | Mark Smith, West Seattle Expression | Luke 12:35-48

What actions should we take if we want to seek Jesus’ kingdom? How might Jesus find us if He showed up today? In Luke 12:35-48, Jesus calls us to a kingdom readiness, whereby His servants are ready and watchful, serving faithfully as good stewards. While Jesus’ challenge is sobering, it is one we are called into and find kingdom rewards within His instruction.
