“What I say to you, I say to all: Watch!” Mark 13:37

On a day set apart for the celebration of some great event, how anxious are the people to get in time to the place appointed, and what earnestness may be traced in every countenance! And should not Christians watch, with at least equal solicitude, for the hour in which their Lord shall come, that they may not be ashamed before Him? A heart deceived by sin may suggest many arguments against this holy earnestness — but they are the reasonings of folly. The language of Christ is express and continually urgent, “What I say to you, I say to all: Watch!” Almost every day affords an instance of someone hurried into eternity suddenly. “You do not know what hour your Lord is coming.”

Give me grace, O Lord, to live always as if I heard that solemn voice sounding continually in my ears, “Awake, you dead, and come to judgment!” That so at length, when the Bridegroom comes, I may be found with my lamp burning, ready to go in with Him to the feast Holy Spirit, make and keep me ready for my Lord’s glorious appearing! O Jesus, may I meet You with joy and holy triumph at Your coming!
