The time has come for us to awaken from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The night is far gone; the day is at hand (Romans 13:11-12) Let us not grow unresponsive to the things of God. With each passing day, the time for Jesus' return draws nearer to us. Let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light (Romans 13:12) Paul exhorts believers to repent of and forsake our sins. As believers, we are to walk properly (v13). By living a life pleasing to God, manifesting our outward behavior the inner reality of a redeemed life. So, let us put on the Lord Jesus Christ. Let us put on righteousness each day of our lives while it called today and awaken from our slumber.
Lord, I come to you today in humility of my sin. My soul is vexed. Please forgive me for sinning against you. Thank you for your protection that you give me each day. My soul is overwhelmed by your goodness toward me. Help me to love others as you have loved me. Help me to be your light in the darkness. O that I should walk righteously before you God of my salvation. What a wretched person I can be. You love me with an unconditional love and it is this same love that I should have for others. For the one that loves another has fulfilled the law. Give me the strength to cast off the works of darkness and put on your armor of light. Thank you Lord for calling me to yourself. My soul would be lost without you. Thank you for taking my place on the cross of Calvary. It is Jesus precious name I pray. Amen.
