Reading: Romans 13: 8-14 (Click to read text)
Reflection: Think of something you have waited for: Christmas, a birthday party, a visit with a friend, a new job, a vacation. As you wait, your excitement turns into action: putting up decorations, baking a cake, buying new work clothes, packing a suitcase. You ready yourself before the actual day.
Waiting for the return of Christ is something like these experiences. Our expectation of Christ’s return someday changes the way we live today. Waiting looks like honorable living. To “put on the armor of light” is to live in the new day before it has dawned. By works of love for God and neighbor, we get ready to receive our Lord Jesus Christ with joy. --Submitted by Ruth Gates, Camp Mount Luther Family Camper
Closing Prayer: Lord Jesus, grant that our waiting for you would turn into the action of service to others. Amen.
