Tibetan Script Gospel Meditation – Mark 13:32-37

Mark 13.32-37 w B

” … But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard, keep awake. For you do not know when the time will come. It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his servants in charge, each with his work, and commands the door-keeper to stay awake. Therefore stay awake – for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or when the cock crows, or in the morning – lest he come suddenly and find you asleep. And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake.”

Yeshu now completes his answer to the disciples’ question: ‘How can we know when the great day of the end of this world is about to come?’ Watch out, it could be today, even this minute!

Each disciple of Christ, like the life-servants (tshe-g.yog) in a great house (dpon-shag), has his own duty. So too each one of us must this very day, like the door-keeper (sgo-r-ba), be alert and ready for Yeshu’s return. Are we watchfully doing his work?
