Be Present

Luke 12:37

“Blessed are those servants whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival.”

WAKE UP. That is what Jesus meant by being “vigilant” for the master’s arrival. His statement is not meant as a threat from a God who just can’t wait to punish us if we don’t have our acts together! Jesus said that if we know him…then we also know God (John 8:19 and John 14:7). Did you ever see Jesus inflicting pain and suffering on anyone? Did you ever see Jesus threatening sinners with punishment? If this was what God had in mind for such sinners…don’t you think Jesus would have been warning them every chance he could? Instead…Jesus spent most of his time reaching out in love to those who don’t have their acts together. The only ones Jesus verbally reprimands are the self-righteous religious leaders! God loves us right now unconditionally…which means God will love us just the same in the future. The question is…are you present to that Love? Are you mindful of the Love of God in this moment? This moment is the only one that is real…the only time you can actually encounter Love beyond love. Wake up! Be present to God in each moment. Then you will surely find that God is always arriving and always loving you. Then…”blessed” or happy you would be!
