Read: Romans 13: 11-12
Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.
As one of many who are currently working from home, I can tell you “waking up” is a little more difficult than it has been for most of my adult life. With no real set agenda for the day, I have to make sure I keep up my routine. And so I do. It’s not always easy to get up and get going, but it is worth it, right?
Even more important than getting up at the sound of the alarm clock, Paul is calling each of us to be spiritually awake! Today! It’s important in times like this to remember our ultimate salvation is growing nearer each day we live.
Sometimes we need a wake-up call, right? Sometimes we need to be warned, admonished, and sometimes awakened from our nap whether we like it or not. So, once you get your wake-up call, don’t hit the snooze button. Let’s stay awake.
