Eph 5:15-17 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Col 4:2 Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving;

Col 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time.

Wisdom: Wisdom is what took Rebekah to one-step higher than what the servant of Abraham would have expected from a normal bride. The wisdom in how she behaved spoke and acted all culminated and made him to wonder at her. He remained silent until all the things were finished to see whether the will of God and His ways are established in His master’s life. And it did; Rebekah became the bride of Isaac one of the forefathers of Faith.

Do we have these qualities (Compassion, Patience, urgency and wisdom) within us to be selected as a bride for our Lord and Bridegroom? When we as a church, failed to do these things then we are not ready; but somehow we remain indifferent to the message of His coming. Paul says in Eph 5:15-16, we need to walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. In addition, he suggests that be wise to understand the will of the Lord. Redeeming the time with all these attributes will help us to know more about His will and will it help us to be ready for His coming to be joined as His bride.

“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.” Eph 5:14
