“Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.”
If you want to grow spiritually, and stay healthy and strong, stay awake to spiritual reality, to the truth about God.
When we are awake, we are most aware of our surroundings and what is happening.
When asleep, we are oblivious to what is happening around us.
God’s good is happening all the time, and we have spiritual sense to see it and participate in it. But we need to be awake, engaged with spiritual sense, to participate in God’s goodness and experience its blessings.
To have the best experience, guard against any type of mental lethargy, apathy or sleepiness that would dull your senses and make you feel separated from God’s presence.
Stay alert, attentive, engaged with spiritual truth. God’s presence will be real and tangible to you, and it will keep you healthy and well.
“Awake, O sleeper!” There is no time to idle. Let your thought fill with Christ light and keep you in a peaceful productive place.
