Matthew 24:37-44

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"The Son of Man will come" (Matthew 24:44)

Truly humble, stilled and quiet souls are indeed the stables of majesty He prefers as His indwelling sanctuary. Our cold, dark, smelly, prickly manger of a soul becomes the very place He transforms into a refuge of welcome for the simple and the wise. All seek and find Him adorable in the soul from which He beckons, "Come to me..."

"He would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into...
for at the hour you do not expect the Son of Man will come."
He perpetually comes as the "I am with you always," presence in our eternal, heavenly souls. The thief that comes is the sin we invite to displace our beloved. He cannot remain where sin has taken up a home.

Let us not be deceived that He is coming at some unknown time. He always comes, is always here, ready to return to our souls, to make straight the Way for His coming. We shed the darkness of sin for Him to redress us with His Light. To present Him to others, we first, empty ourselves to conceive Him, to create a welcome home for Him to remain...

O Lord, we pray to see the hour we do not expect is indeed, every hour and each moment. Christ dies, rises and comes to join us again to Himself. Help us to be prepared for His coming. Amen.

- Mary Williams
