“Speaking of His second coming of Christ calls all people either hosts or servants. In both cases He warns all to expect Him in wakefulness and vigilance, the Lord of Glory and the Judge of the world. Every man is the host and the master of the spiritual treasure which is stored within his soul. As such that each host keeps his inner treasure with at least as much care as a good host would put into keeping his worldly treasure. “If the good man of the house had known it would watch the thief would come he would have watched and would not have suffered his house to be broken up” (Matthew 24). But since he does not know when that time is he has to keep watch at all times day and night. Likewise we have to keep our souls at all times from demons, evil and invisible thieves, so they do not plunder our treasure and leave are so empty and desolate on the day of Christ’s coming.”
