Wake Up!

At church prayer meeting this morning, a conversation went like this:

Person A: So… what do we think God is saying to us today?

*Silence*

Person B: WAKE UP!

And indeed, that is what God was saying to us. In fact, he says it a few times. Ephesians 5:14 says…

Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you

Sometimes, it’s easy to fall asleep… to get too occupied with grumbling about life.

The fact of the matter is that God has called us to do a job as Christians, and that’s to bring his kingdom to people and to claim the villages, towns, cities and nations for Jesus.

How can we expect people to respond to God or to accept Jesus if we’re sleeping?

God is telling us to WAKE UP, and in return, Christ’s light will shine upon us.
