Message: Jesus covers a lot of things in Luke
12, but in verse 35 he starts talking about the importance of being ready and ‘dressed
for service”. Making sure we have what we need, being mentally ready and aware,
and being productive and busy even when the boss is not looking. This passage
talks about how important it is to not only have our things ready, but be
actively working wit or without the “boss” looking over our shoulders. We need
to be trusted to do the things God has commanded us to do and he will trust us
to do even more.
Command: Be diligent about doing the things
God commanded of us
Promise: God will reward those who finds doing
Warning: It’s easy to slack off and get lazy
when the boss is not around.
Application: This applies to both our physical and
spiritual life. We should be working at our jobs-no matter what it is with our
best work. The same when it comes to spiritual matters. Reading the word and
being obedient regardless of our audience or circumstance. We should treat
every day like it might be the day that the Lord comes.
