"And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed."
Have you ever watched a movie, tried to study for an exam, or driven while you're sleepy? Not fun! If we try doing these things while we're sleepy, we are going to miss something important, or be unprepared, or even worse, crash and possibly hurt ourselves or others.
The same goes for our Christian life. We must wake up out of our groggy slumber, know the times, become attentive, be ready, and be a giver of good news. Are we a sleepy Christian, low on energy and distracted? We are living in times that are asking, begging, for us to get up and get active.
