The Master's Return
by Randy Chambers, 2015-10-28
Luke 12:38, NIV: It will be good for those servants whose master
finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night.
Time ticks on. The end is nearer. We mark our days by usual occurrences, and
frequently give little thought to the fact that today could be our last day on
this earth. So focused are we on the events of today, that the certainty of our
Lordís return often escapes our attention. And while we must continue each day
to work and live and continue on; we must also keep watch, for we do not know
when the Master will return. His return is imminent. His return is certain. We
must make no mistake. In the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus told his disciples to
watch and pray so that they would not fall into temptation. This is the charge
to us as well--to watch and pray so that we do not fall to temptation--so that we
will be watching steadfastly for the Masters return.
