If He Should Come In The Second Watch…
When Jesus Christ comes will He find us waiting for His return or will He find us reviewing the football teams stats? Or out for another run? Or somewhere in the shadows watching pornography, taking drugs or at the strip club? Where will Jesus Christ find us when He returns?
This is a question that should be on our hearts at all times. This is the question that should make our feet to take the next step, our eyes to see the next thing and our ears to hear what is happening about us.
Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. ~ Luke 12:37-38 NKJB
What would it be like to have Jesus Christ serve us? What would it be like to serve others in the name of Jesus Christ? Shouldn’t we experience what He would experience performing the same task? It seems, when we are out and about dining away from the house, we rarely, if ever, see others showing any humility in their task. They are not working, or performing, as those they are serving anyone of importance. Mostly, they act as if it is a nuisance and is disrupting their schedule. We will be divided. We are currently dividing ourselves along lines that can not be seen but surely exist.
We should welcome this division. We should embrace this division and celebrate its arrival.
Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division. For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three. Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.” ~ Luke 12:51-53 NKJB
what can one human say to another that is committed to living in sin to the point of making a surgical change to their body?> What can one human say to another person that is so committed to living in sin as to stand before God, family and country and tell them how wrong they are about the life they are living? To defy your family is one thing, to defy God is whole other issue. To defy God to the point of making a medical change to your body is sin on a level that we are not familiar.
Jesus knew this time was coming. Jesus knew that we would be faced with this level of sin and He prepared a way for us to understand our part. We have no part with the sexual deviance that is happening in our world today. We separate ourselves from it.
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
