The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
Our opening Scripture today is very profound as it encapsulates a wake-up call to believers. It acknowledges that the night has exhausted its permitted duration; this refers to the seasons when darkness thrived. But now, it’s time for the breaking of the day of the Lord!; and the dawn is right at hand. So, we must all awake to this call of alertness.
Our opening Scripture goes on to tell us what we must do, as we move out from the night into the day. It charges us to put away the works of darkness as the night passes away. Works such as, lying, anger, stealing, corrupt communication and more. We are to put on the armour of light as we approach the breaking of the day; which speaks of truth, kindness, tenderheartedness, forgiveness and more.
So, are you ready for the breaking of the day of the Lord? This is a wake-up call to every believer, so that we do not get caught unawares, as the day of the Lord is truly at hand. Glory to God!
