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.
What an amazing statement! Instead of "awake", most versions use the word "watching". Watching for what? His return. Two thousand years later, we are still to live this life in the expectation of His second coming. From a human perspective, that is tough. We don't think in terms of waiting patiently for thousands of years. In fact, in this day and age, we don't want to wait for thousands of minutes. We want what we want, and we want it NOW! But that is not my point this morning.
Look at what GOD says He will do if He finds us alertly watching and waiting for His return.
"He will dress himself for service and have them recline at table, and he will come and serve them."
Once again... amazing beyond words. The Bridegroom is waiting for His Bride, to love and serve her. He wants to serve us. He wants to pour out His great and awesome love on us. And it sounds like its one of the first things He wants to do.
Lord, let me be found awake.
