"You do not know when your master is coming" (Matthew 24:42)

If the boss comes into the office or onto the shop floor unexpectedly, there can be a feeling of panic. What's going to happen, and what are we to do? We believe that Christ will come again, but we do not know when. Bishop Thomas Ken, Chaplain to King Charles II, wrote these lines:-
                "Redeem thy mis-spent time that's past,and live this day as if thy last"
If Christ comes today, will we be found as his faithful servants, doing his will with a joyful heart?

Lord, we look towards the day of Christ's coming, May we prepare for that moment every minute of our lives, that we shall be ready to greet our King. Amen.
