Wake Up!

Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.
(Ephesians 5:14)

Feeling a bit snooozzzzzzy? I am.

It’s 5:36 a.m. and I’m already on my second cup of coffee. Unfortunately, it appears that I’m becoming immune to caffeine and I’m giving serious consideration to climbing back into my warm and comfy bed.

I need a supernatural wake-up call. Without further ado, here are my favorite DON’T-EVEN-THINK-ABOUT-HITTING-THE-SNOOZE-BUTTON-AGAIN-YOU-SLACKER-GET-UP-GET-OUT-THERE-AND-GO-LIVE-FOR-GOD-THROUGH-THE-POWER-OF-THE-HOLY-SPIRIT-STARTING-RIGHT-NOW VERSES:

How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest — and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man. (Proverbs 6:9-11)

“Why are you sleeping?” Jesus asked his disciples. “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.” (Luke 22:46)

The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. (Romans 13:11-12)

Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you. (Revelation 3:3)

GET UP!
