“Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time will come. It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his servants in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to be on the watch. Watch therefore—for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning – lest he come suddenly and find you asleep. And what I say to you I say to all: Watch!” (Mk 13: 33-37)

It’s never boring, a life in Christ. We’re called always to be expecting the next visit of “The Coming One”; of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who “comes again” (καὶ πάλιν ἐρχόμενον / и паки грядущаго), and again, into our lives, if we’re paying attention. So let me re-focus this morning, and resume my watching and praying for the Master of my House. I’m not forgotten in this place, nor left to work day-in and day-out purposelessly. No, I’m given my work, and my place, by One Who does hold me accountable. And He gifts me with a watchful and prayerful existence, of excited anticipation of His returns. “Help us, save us, have mercy on us, and keep us, O God, by Your grace!”
