Stay Awake

Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will dress himself for service and have them recline at table, and he will come and serve them.
Luke 12:38 If he comes in the second watch, or in the third, and finds them awake, blessed are those servants!
Luke 12:39 But know this, that if the master of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into.
Luke 12:40 You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect."

As Christians we should never fall asleep in our service to the Lord. We should remain faithful in our service to the Lord and not waver or fall away. Just as the master in this parable that comes back and sees that their servant is awake. We too should be awake as servants of the Lord. Even when the master isn’t here. We should serve in the little things. The Lord sees us and he knows what we are doing at all times. He is always with us, but we should also be ready for the coming of Jesus. 1st Thessalonians 5:2 says, “For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.” No one knows when the Lord is going to come again, so we should always be ready. We should be serving Him no matter what.
I’ve talked to people who say that they are going to live their lives how they want to now and then at the end of their lives they will decide to become a Christian. This way of thinking is scary to me. You could be crossing the street and get hit by a car tonight. I don’t want to live for today and give up eternity with the Lord. Living for the Lord is so much better than living for myself anyway.

Today I will keep an attitude of being a servant the whole day.
