Ephesians 4:12

"To equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up."NIV

"For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry for the edifying of the body of Christ."KJV

Let's imagine for a moment that we are setting out for a journey of a lifetime. Would we not be foolish and seen as foolish by others, if we set out for this journey with no preparation or equipment that we will need during our journey? If we are honest with ourselves, that's just what many of us do on this most important journey we will ever take, the journey to eternal life with Jesus Christ. Some expect that the Lord will do all the things that need to be done. He did die in our place on the cross, so we don't need to do works in order to be saved. But His Word tells us to "be ready" "study" "pray" "seek Him" "share the gospel" "put on the armor of God" "let our lights shine" "stir up our faith" "forsake not assembling with other believers." This is only a tiny list of things we are to do to equip ourselves for the journey. How equipped are we?

Heavenly Father, in this busy world, we have allowed ourselves to become distracted and we have not done those things that will equip us and others for our journey though this life. Forgive us for our lack of fervor and zeal. Help us to be energized by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us so that we will have all we need to get to our destination. We pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.
