Wesley's Notes for Luke 21:34
21:34 Take heed, lest at any time your hearts be overloaded with gluttony and drunkenness - And was there need to warn the apostles themselves against such sins as these? Then surely there is reason to warn even strong Christians against the very grossest sins. Neither are we wise, if we think ourselves out of the reach of any sin: and so that day - Of judgment or of death, come upon you, even you that are not of this world - Unawares. #Mt 24:42|; Mr 13:33; Lu 12:35.

Comments for Luke 21:34
Ojo Femi's comment on 2013-08-23 05:53:23:
It was necessary for Jesus to forewarn even the apostles of such gross sins, like these. We become foolish if we think ourselves to be immune to sin; hence Christ tells the apostles to take heed, even in things in which we may think we shouldn't dabble.
