June 30th – 1 Thessalonians 5:6

1 Thessalonians 5:6

We all know the benefits of sleep. And doctors often laud it’s benefits for our minds and bodies. But when it comes to being a Christian, sleep is our enemy. Not the kind our bodies need of course, but the kind that keeps us ignorant, idle, and ineffective for God. The day of the Lord is soon approaching. And as the the world happily goes about it’s sinful ways unaware and uncaring of the of what is to come, we cannot. For the time is short, and there is much work to be done. Jesus said He will be returning. And as His followers He commands us to be alert, sober, and working for God’s kingdom until He comes. We cannot afford sleep, or to be spiritually lazy or uninformed. Instead we should yelling from the rooftops, warning the world of God’s impending judgements. Jesus is coming! Are you awake and ready?
