Keeping Watch

“Keep your shirts on; keep the lights on! Be like house servants waiting for their master to come back from his honeymoon, awake and ready to open the door when he arrives and knocks. Lucky the servants whom the master finds on watch! He’ll put on an apron, sit them at the table, and serve them a meal, sharing his wedding feast with them. It doesn’t matter what time of the night he arrives; they’re awake—and so blessed!”
(Luke 12:35-38, The Message)

As I was reading this this morning, God really put something on my heart: the fac that He is coming back soon. There have been many trials in my life as of late, and they have left me feeling hopeless, discouraged, and afraid.

But, reading this, I have realized that my gaze was on the wrong thing. Instead of being on Jesus and eternity, it has been on my earthly trials. No one is asking for perfection in this area, and we all tend to look at our trials instead of Jesus… but He gently nudged me today, showing me the importance of where my gaze is at.

He gently nudged me, showing me the importance of where my gaze is at.


I want to be ready for when He comes back. Do you? This is not some way just to escape reality; it IS reality! Are you waiting for Jesus’ return, or are you clinging to this world? Again, I am not saying that we shouldn’t enjoy our lives here– but where are our eyes? I’d like to keep them on Him. 🔹

Do you know Jesus?

Jesus came to Earth once, and He is coming again! Learn about what He first came here to do, here.

Please pray for…

  • Christians all over to keep their eyes on Jesus.
  • Those who are being persecuted; that they would find comfort in focusing on eternity.
  • The Gospel to go out and lives to be saved eternally.
  • For lives to be saved in the here and now, from terrorists.

Thank you for your prayers!!
