Dressed For Action, Prepared For Appearance

Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; (Luke 12:35)

This passage suggests that only those who travel lightly will be prepared.  It suggests that we are to be dressed for action and prepared for Christ’s return.  One day Christ will appear and will come to receive those who have been faithful servants.  As we travel on this life’s journey, only carry those things which are necessary for service.  Don’t hold on to things of the world.  Let go of any unnecessary weight.  Excess weight will hold you back.  It will slow you down.  It will beset you.   Travel lightly and be prepared.  No one knows when the Master will return.  Always be ready.  It may be today.  It may be tomorrow.  Is your lamp burning?  Is your light shining?  Are men able to see your good works that they might glorify the Father which is in heaven.  Don’t get caught up with the desires of this world.  Gird up your loins. Be stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.  How is your light shining today?
