12 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.
13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
As the sun rises, most wake up in order to begin their days. We put on our work clothes and head to work. Whatever profession we may choose, is the way we carry ourselves. What if we looked at Christianity this way? What if, as soon as we wake up, we decided that we could be about the father’s business? That is how we should be. We should wake up and not worry about what we do not have. We should wake up and look toward the father’s business. When we step out our front door, we should do our best to show Jesus to the world. We should not be yelling at our children or our spouses. We should not be yelling at the guy who cut us off on the freeway. We should stay calm. If we put Jesus at the forefront of our life, these verses are easy to follow. If we strive to be like him, it makes these verses impossible not to follow.
