It is tragic to see so many people spiritually sleepwalking through life. They live each day the same as the previous one—oblivious to all the ways God is working around them. They have no perception of how the God who loves them more than anyone else possibly could is trying to get their attention. They have fallen under the spell of Satan, the great deceiver, who wants to direct mankind away from our only source of salvation.
On the other hand, it is uplifting to observe people who wake up from their spiritual slumber and really come alive, excited about what God has done for them through Jesus. They encourage those around them and inspire others to join them in their new awakening. They talk about the goodness of the Lord and they invite their friends to come to church with them. They understand that each day is a blessing from God, and they live accordingly, blessing others along the way.
So, how about you? Are you sleepwalking through life? Or are you wide awake?
“So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled.”—1 Thessalonians 5:6.
