On duty

Mark 13:37 And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake.

The message in this passage is more than clear: stay awake.  It’s a reminder that I’m always on duty for You.  Like a soldier doesn’t decide when to serve and when to rest, so I’m to be on guard unless told otherwise by my Commander.  While I may have times of rest and relaxation the timing and duration is not my decision.

This feels like a hard message to me today but it’s nothing I don’t already know.  If I try and live my life according to my own rules then You aren’t Lord.  You’ve called me to stay alert – help me to stay focussed.
