The Triumph of the Church

42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. (Matt. 24:42-44)

The triumph of the Church is not in our ability to predict the future. The triumph of the Church is found in our endurance. We are to keep watch. We are to be ready. We are to endure through this world, living out the power of the Kingdom, and ready for the Master whenever he calls us home.
