Wake Up! (1Thess 5)

So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

Wake Up! Too many Christians are asleep in our own little bubbles. There is a lost world in the darkness, they need the light we have. We have nothing to be ashamed of or anything to fear, we don’t need to slink around in the shadows, let’s shout it from the mountain tops “Jesus is Lord!” Jesus died so you might be saved, that’s pretty good news that we need to get out there. We need to build each other up and encourage our fellow believers to get out there and tell the world! Keep it up, it’s up to you!
