Live like He will come back today (part 2)

“Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants and eats and drinks with drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know and will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
- Matthew 24:45-51

Now this is the part that scares me. It's not only hard to live like Christ will be returning soon, its also dangerous if we don't. It doesn't even say "the master" will be angry but it says he will "cut him in pieces." I think this appropriately scares me.

But what does it look like to live like we're ready for Him to return? What do we change in our lives? If I knew the Lord was coming back this weekend I would legitimately get ahold of everyone I know and I love who isn't a believe and be begging them to reconsider their faith. I would not care if they never wanted to see me again. I would not care if I was suddenly considered crazy and was a plight to my neighbors. I would not care because their eternal life would be decided within the week.

How can we live like that when it's likely that we have a few more years? It's likely we can pray for our friends for years and set a model with our lives which they'll desire to imitate. It's likely some of our friends who we've shared with before will become believers before they die or the Lord returns.

How do we live with what we're ordered to do, and what the reality seems to be? What about your life should and can legitimately change in light of the immanent second coming?
