Wake up from your sleep,
Climb out of your coffins;
Christ will show you the light!
(Ephesians 5: 15)
Paul starts building volume a few verses back when he says, “Don’t waste your time…”
Then a little louder, “Expose these things!”
Then he’s hollering, “Rip the cover off those frauds!!!”
By the time Paul says, “Wake up from your sleep.” It’s a battle cry.
Get up and do it!
Wake up from your sleep and Climb out of your coffins call us to action.
We have to move towards God. “Then Christ will show us the light.”
We have to engage with him.
Life’s chatter and white noise roars so loud in my brain, I can’t hear from God. When I find myself falling into the “sleep” of day to day life, I need to retreat to a remote part of these Ozark hills or some other out of the way place until I wake up and see light again.
