Prepare your lamp

28 July 2019

Prepare yourself, my brother, prepare yourself to welcome the heavenly Bridegroom, the most glorious Lord Jesus Christ. Behold, ‘He is coming in the middle of the night and blessed is the servant whom He will find watchful. And unworthy the one He finds heedless’ Wake up, prepare the lamp of your heart. ‘Arise, why are you slumbering? The end approaches and soon you will be troubled’. The Lord is coming, with Whom you will live and rejoice eternally. Take care that your lamp does not go out. Take care that your soul does not fall asleep because of idleness and sloth. Prepare yourself to welcome within you the Lord of Glory. He has come and is knocking at the door of your heart. Listen to Him.
