Message of the Day: A Call For Action!

Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ…” (1 Peter 1:13, NKJV)

This is a graphic call for action. The Orientals wear loose, flowing robes. So in the language of the first century, it meant that the reader should literally gather up his long, flowing garments and be ready for physical action.

It means that we were to have our minds in constant preparation to discharge the duties, or to endure the trials of life – like those who were prepared for labor, for a race, or for a conflict. We are not to become faint or weary in our trials. We are not to abandon the hopes of the gospel, but were to cherish those hope to the end of life, whatever opposition we might meet.

We should always be ready for action. We should discipline our thoughts and behavior so that we will always be ready for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
