So then let us not be like others who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober.
So many sleep walk through life. They never are awake enough to really live. But we are not going to do that with our lives!
We are alive because we know Jesus has come and not only brought us life, but he has also showed us how to live. So we are going to be alert. We are going to be self-controlled. We're going to be fully alive, because we know Jesus' return is imminent and our day of salvation and deliverance is near.
Heavenly Father, forgive me, for the times that I have lost my sense of urgency to live for Jesus. Use the Holy Spirit within me to arouse my passions to serve him with my eyes wide open and heart set on great and heavenly things. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
