I Don’t Want to Get Caught Sleeping! ~ April 30

I Don’t Want to Get Caught Sleeping!

But then, maybe that would be best

I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?  Luke 18:8

What will Jesus find when He returns? I often ponder this, and wonder—especially when I’m doing something I know I shouldn’t be doing—what if He came back right now. But then, He knows we’re not perfect and never will be, so I don’t think it will matter what we happen to be doing when He arrives. Me, I would prefer to be doing something good—reading the Bible, or writing an encouragement, maybe—but I don’t think it will matter to Jesus.

This makes me think of the time Sherry came home from work and found me sprawled out in my big easy chair. She’d evidently had a long hard day, and when she spotted me, one of her eyebrows shot up menacingly and she asked, “Well, what did you do today?” Jokingly (not realizing the severity of the situation) I grinned and said, “Nothing.” I think the other eyebrow shot up, and she said, “That’s what you did yesterday.” I shrugged and said, “I wasn’t finished.”

When Jesus returns, I hope I’m doing something that pleases Him, but I don’t think He’ll care what I’m doing, as long as I’m believing in Him and waiting faithfully for Him.
