Being prepared for His return: Be accountable for how you treat others.

Jesus will return unexpectedly at a time when His servants are treating people well; they are faithful to Him and each other; they are wise in their area of influence that they have been given.

 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.”

Jesus will return unexpectedly at a time when His servants are doing the opposite!

“But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” (Matthew 24 v 45-51)

This servant will be tempted to think the master is not coming because the delay is long, he will think he is free to treat the other servants not as belonging to the master but just as people and people he can abuse.

This servant will begin to act like someone who does not belong to the master. He will begin to act as if he was the master.

He will be surprised when the master returns and if he has fallen into the temptation of being ruthless, vile, abuser of people then he will be dealt with heavily. He will be known as a hypocrite and dealt with as such.

Consider your ways. Love people. Take care of them. Show that you are ready and waiting.
