Subject: October 8th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord tarrieth . . . Matthew 24.48.

What is the reason for this servant’s faults? “My lord tarrieth”— He truly believes in the second coming of the Lord, except that in his estimation the Lord will come tardily. Whoever does not believe in the soon return of the Lord is an evil servant. What does the Lord say is the fault of this evil servant? Just this, that though he confesses with his mouth that the Lord shall indeed come, he nevertheless says in his heart that the Lord will delay. How precarious is such a position! Will a person watch if he has no idea that the Lord is coming soon? We must have both the attitude and the desire for the soon return of the Lord.
