Vital signs- Thursday, April 8th, 2021


“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.”

(Romans 13:11)

 

Do you know what Napoleon said about China? “There lies a sleeping giant, and let him sleep, because if he awakens, he will shake the world.”

I believe the devil says that about the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. And I believe the Church is just that: a sleeping giant. We’re asleep because we have been chloroformed by the “spirit of this age.”

We’re bombarded on every side by all kinds of amusement. Do you know what amuse means? It’s a combination of two words. Muse means to think, and the alpha prefix in front of it means “not to.” We are a generation that is amusing (not thinking) ourselves into oblivion. And it’s time to wake up!


Are you taking the Christian life seriously? If this were your last day on earth, how would you spend it? In amusement? Or in telling others about Jesus?
