Who is the one that the Lord will be pleased with at this very moment? Who will He be pleased with when He returns? It will be His servant that lives a life of continual servitude to his master Jesus Christ. Keeping His ways, commands, precepts, encouraging one another, loving the unlovable, and diligently working to build the Kingdom of Heaven.
Do all you can to please the Father in everything you do. Be alert to the opportunities He has placed before you, and the work He has prepared for you. Be found faithful right now, and when the Lord returns, keeping yourselves busy doing the Lord’s will and work.
Each one of us has a different job, given to us by the Lord, as a part of the body of Christ. Work together with others in the body to do the Lord’s work. Just as a real body works together to accomplish a task. Go forth keeping this all in mind.
Work together to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, help the broken, lift up the weak, make bold the unsure, comfort the lonely, encourage the brotherhood, and seek to save the lost!
42 Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into.
44 Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. 45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? 46 Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 47 Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions.
