08 Mar 04/28/13 Keep Your Loins Girded and Your Lamp Burning (Luke 12: 34-40)
What does it mean to keep your light burning? Some say Jesse bashes blacks too much. Identify with the spiritual, and not the physical.
BOND Archive Sunday Service, April 28, 2013: Jesse Lee Peterson invites people to respond to his Biblical Question. Luke 12: 34-40 states in part: “Keep your loins girded and your lamp burning.” What does this mean? Know yourself, and know what you don’t know. Some people feel bothered at Jesse for his focus on black people because they identify with the whole group. We talk at-length with some in-church who feel Jesse’s “bashing” the blacks! Live in the light of God, in the present, and He will guide you.
In Luke 12: 35-40, Jesus said:
35 ‘See that you have your belts done up and your lamps lit. 36 Be like people waiting for their master to return from the wedding feast, ready to open the door as soon as he comes and knocks. 37 Blessed those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes. In truth I tell you, he will do up his belt, sit them down at table and wait on them. 38 It may be in the second watch that he comes, or in the third, but blessed are those servants if he finds them ready. 39 You may be quite sure of this, that if the householder had known at what time the burglar would come, he would not have let anyone break through the wall of his house. 40 You too must stand ready, because the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.’
