Luke 12:40 You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.” (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

Even as Jesus is headed for crucifixion in Jerusalem He is thinking about His return to earth for His Bride (the church of believers). He cautions us about remaining dressed and working for Him. How are we to be dressed? We are to be dressed in His Holy Spirit and the robes of forgiveness He gives us. We are to be working through the gifts of His Holy Spirit that He gives to each and every believer according to their calling for the preparation of establishing His Kingdom on earth the same way it is in heaven. We are to be found dressed and working when He comes. He says no one will know when He is coming back. We are to be in a continual state of readiness. If He came today how would He find us dressed and what would He find us doing? We don’t have any laurels to rest on. Let us take Him seriously, stay clothed through forgiveness and through His Holy Spirit and be about the things of God.
