Be Ready!

But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.
- Romans 13:14

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of day:
we are not of the night, nor of the darkness.
Therefore, let us not sleep, as do others;
but let us watch and be sober.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:5, 6

The word sober in verse 6 means living with our eyes opened.
The Lord’s return is coming someday, my friends, are we ready?

But let us, who are of the day, be sober,
putting on the breastplate of faith and love;
and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation
by our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep,
we should live together with him.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:8 - 10

We do not want to be found dressed in dirty garments when the Lord Jesus returns.
As a follower of Jesus, we are privileged to wear the armor of light,
not the deeds of darkness.
We have absolutely NO reason to get involved in the pleasures of the world.

And now, little children, abide in him;
that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence,
and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
that we should be called the sons of God:
therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be:
but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him;
for we shall see him as he is.
- 1 John 2:28, 3:1 - 2

But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.
- Romans 13:14

To put on the Lord Jesus Christ means to become more and more like Him,
to receive by faith all that He is for our daily living.
What are we eating? We grow on what we eat
so that is why God warns us not to make provisions for the flesh.

If we feed the flesh, we will fail,
but if we feed the inner man the nourishing things of the Spirit,
we will succeed.
- Wiersbe Commentary

Blessings to each one of you!
