32 “Now concerning that day or hour no one knows — neither the angels in heaven nor the Son — but only the Father. 33 “Watch! Be alert! For you don’t know when the time is coming. 34 “It is like a man on a journey, who left his house, gave authority to his servants, gave each one his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to be alert. 35 Therefore be alert, since you don’t know when the master of the house is coming — whether in the evening or at midnight or at the crowing of the rooster or early in the morning. 36 Otherwise, when he comes suddenly he might find you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you, I say to everyone: Be alert! ”
The coming of trial and persecution isn’t announced in advance. We must be alert and keep our eyes on Jesus! He is able to sustain us but we must remain alert.
Am I sleepy in my spirit or are my eyes fully open to all Jesus is?
Father, don’t let me be lulled to sleep by comfort in these days.
