Time To Wake Up
“Therefore He says: ‘Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.” Ephesians 5:14 NKJV
Paul wrote to the Romans, “We live in an important time. Yes, it is now time for you to wake up from your sleep. Our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is almost finished. The day is almost here. So we should stop doing whatever belongs to darkness. We should prepare ourselves to fight evil with the weapons that belong to the light. We should live in a right way, like people who belong to the day. We should not have wild parties or be drunk. We should not be involved in sexual sin or any kind of immoral behavior. We should not cause arguments and trouble or be jealous.” Romans 13:11-13
There’s really no need dwelling on the past; no need talking about the bad and terrible things we’ve done up till yesterday: today’s a new day, and there’s a renewed call by the Spirit to us all to wake up!
There’s still so much work to be done; so many souls to be won: but God can’t do much through us in our present condition: He’s tapping us this morning by His word; Wake up, church! It’s time to wake up and get busy with the work He assigned to us: time to get ourselves ready for His return!
