Watch! Time is short

Mark 13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Matthew 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

The hour of death is uncertain; the second coming of Jesus equally so. Therefore we are commanded to be ready always on the watch. His coming is the grand object of our faith, and should be our daily desire and prayer. It will be unimaginably glorious. The Apostle Paul calls it our glorious hope, the climatic conclusion of history. But the timing of it knows no man, for God has purposely concealed it, in wisdom and mercy and for our good. He commands us to watch and keep awake, to be at our post and busy in our calling. In our watching we must be convinced daily, fervently believing Jesus will come any moment, and praying to be found ready.–Daily Remembrancer November 11 Morning
