Absent Husband = Vigilant Bride
My husband was out of town for a week recently on business.
I noticed that I took a little extra care to lock things that don't usually get locked.
I double-checked to make sure things were closed tight that I might usually leave open.
And, of course, I had a fully loaded thing within arms reach should the need arise.
I slept a bit more fitfully than normal.
I knew that because my protector was away, I needed to be more vigilant than normal; but he didn't leave me defenseless.
Reminds me of the church - the "bride" of Christ.
He is away, but He's coming back; and He certainly hasn't left us defenseless.
Let's be vigilant in His absence while looking forward to His return.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Ephesians 6:13
