Today’s devotion is based on Romans 13:10-12, “If you love others, you will never do them wrong; to love, then, is to obey the whole Law. You must do this because you know that the time has come for you to wake up from your sleep. For the moment when we will be saved is closer now than it was when we first believed. The night is nearly over, the day is almost here. Let us stop doing the things that belong to the dark, and let us take up weapons for fighting in the light.”
When you first became a Christian, a new journey started. So the old things of the past journey, the things that belong to the dark—anything that would slow you down and deter you from your journey, must stop. With acts of love and kindness to others, prepare for the arrival of Jesus, for we are getting closer to it every day. Take up the spiritual weapons for fighting in the light. Put on Christ as you await the coming of the best day ever!
Please pray with me the prayer for today. Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, let me not grow sleepy in well-doing but alert me to acts of love and faithfulness with each passing hour so that I am prepared your coming. All glory and honor are given to you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
