Since long ago at Bethany we parted

And when at night I’m keeping lonely vigil-

Grown numb alike to sorrow and to cheer-

Then I recall the promise of Thy coming!

In my Bible reading I came to Matthew 9:14-15. The disciples of John were perplexed that Jesus and His disciples were feasting and enjoying while they themselves were fasting. The Lord's response is how can they fast when they have Me, the lovely bridegroom with them? But a day is coming when they will fast. Why do they fast? The fast not because of religious duty but because the bridegroom is not with them. They obtain from being stupified by this world. Wow. I was so touched. Lord am I fasting in this age or have I replaced You with other things because of your absence? Saints this is the time to fast because we know that nothing here can compare to the enjoyment of our dear Bridegroom.

How can I take my harp down from the willow?

How can my songs without Thee be enjoyed?

Lord, make us ready for Your coming. Lord, we say that we don't belong to this age, we are just sojourners seeking for a better country - the next age the kingdom age! We don't LIVE for eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage; we LIVE for Christ!
