Be preoccupied for manifestation of God’s presence.

In the parable of the alert servant – Mark 13: 33 – 37, Jesus uses the character of a ” Master ” going away to a foreign country, to illustrate His ascending to Heaven, and leaving earth behind until the second coming. Furthermore, Jesus is talking about coming back at a time that no one knows. So, what is the purpose of leaving us behind – What should we be doing?

As Christians ( followers ), we should live our lives in such a way, that should Jesus return tomorrow, He would find us ready for His arrival or to welcome Him. This means, that we are to be in union with Him, resting in His love, and peace, and therefore bearing fruit that remains ( helping more people to be saved ).

Jesus has left the Church ( his body ) in charge! What should we be doing – While we wait for our Master to return?

As Christians, we should imitate Him and His way of living. He had a servant’s heart. He was always looking, for opportunities to show God’s love to people and ultimately, He surrender His own life for mankind.

In the absence of the physical presence of Jesus, How should we conduct our business as Christians?

Fairly, striving for ” holiness “. Holiness does not come from self-worth ( self sanctification ). It comes from the power and the enabling of the Holy Spirit through the grace of God, established by the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross forever. We should be feeling joy, living a life of peace, regardless of life’s day to day frustrations. You should feel inwardly contented, knowing that you are loved and accepted into God’s family.

” An d since you don’t know when that time will come, be on guard! Stay alert! The coming of the Son of Man can be illustrated by the story of a man going on a long trip. When he left home, he gave each of his slaves instructions about the work they were to do, and he told the gatekeeper to watch for his return. You, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know when the master of the household will return – in the evening, at midnight, before dawn, or at daybreak. Don’t let him find you sleeping when he arrives without warning. I say to you what I say to everyone: Watch for him! ” – Mark 13: 33 – 37.

We believe God is present in every moment, offering each situation the optimum qualities for realm life that are possible given the circumstances of the moment. We must participate with God in the renewal of the World!
