Stealing Hearts

 Jesus said to his disciples:  “Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour when the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. You also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.”

This may be a bit presumptuous, but the Red Sox knew the hour when the thief (Dodgers) were coming, and they did not let their house (Fenway) be broken into.  They were prepared for that confrontation, and they prevailed in the first game of the World Series.

Just like the Sox preparation, we need to prepare for the Son of Man for we do not know when he will come.   If we speak of death then, yes, the hour is unknown.  However, when we speak of life, we know he is always at our doors and knocking. We who have ears ought to hear. 

We willingly open ours doors.  There is no need for Jesus to break in; however, for some he must shoulder the door open or kick it in.   We fear thieves, but we shouldn’t fear the one who steals our hearts.
