What are we to do till He comes?
Look at a parable that Jesus told.
13 "So he called ten of his servants, delivered to them ten minas, and said to them, 'Do business till I come.'
14 "But his citizens hated him, and sent a delegation after him, saying, 'We will not have this man to reign over us.'
15 "And so it was that when he returned, having received the kingdom, he then commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.
16 "Then came the first, saying, 'Master, your mina has earned ten minas.'
17 "And he said to him, 'Well done, good servant; because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities.'
18 "And the second came, saying, 'Master, your mina has earned five minas.'
19 "Likewise he said to him, 'You also be over five cities.'
20 "Then another came, saying, 'Master, here is your mina, which I have kept put away in a handkerchief.
21 'For I feared you, because you are an austere man. You collect what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.'
22 "And he said to him, 'Out of your own mouth I will judge you, you wicked servant. You knew that I was
24 "And he said to those who stood by, 'Take the mina from him, and give it to him who has ten minas.'
27 'But bring here those enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, and slay them before me.'" (NKJ)
In this parable note:
1. He left commands to be obeyed!
2. He would come again!
3. Those who refused His rulership whether it was the one that had been given the money to use or those that outrightly rejected his rulership it was the same thing they were both punished!
What Christ has left for us is easily understood.
