The Sleeping Guard

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

When I was in college, I was working as a security guard. One of my coworkers was a ministerial student, who every night would go into the president’s office at night and sleep. One day the president came in early and this ministerial student was found sleeping on the job. That was the end of his job.

Messiah gave us a parable in Luke 12. The master goes away, the servants grow complacent, doing whatever they want, beating other servants. He returns, finds them unfaithful and punishes them. The parable is about Him. He left the world. He is the master and you don’t see Him, so it’s easy to grow complacent. What are you doing with your life? What are you doing with your time that He gave you? Are you doing His will? Are you letting your light shine? The Master is coming back. There is no time to live a complacent life. Prepare for eternity. You want Him to say, “Well done good and faithful servant.” “Enter the joy of your Master.”
