August 27th: Keep Watch, Keep Awake

“Stay awake, then, for you do not know on what day your Lord  will come”.  Matthew 24 : 42-51

It is the wisdom of God that we should not know when the end will come, or when Jesus will return.  And since we do not know “when” these things will happen, we must be ready at all times

Jesus will return.  He said He would.  He will return at a time when we are not expecting Him.  We must all be prepared for His return, and obey His command to, “Therefore keep watch”.

Am I so preoccupied with the busyness of life and my own particular cares and concerns that I sometimes forget to watch and pray?

It is a test of our faith that we do not know when Jesus will return. It is the “faithful and wise servant” that lives his life as if the Lord could return at any time

Jesus, lead us into a deeper love of God, so we will realise that we have nothing to fear but at any time we can say to God, ‘Look, here I am.’
