During this Advent season, I wanted to send out several short thoughts each week for our church families to think about. These are intended to be a quick thought based on our sermon series which allows for deeper thought and conversations throughout your week.
Romans 13:11 – “Wake up from your slumber since the day is near.”
Advent is a season where we reflect on the hope that the coming of Jesus brings into our life. As we live our lives, we need periodic reminders of the hope that we have and how that hope shapes our lives. Paul gives one such reminder that we need to wake up and live each day knowing that Jesus is alive and coming back. Since Jesus’ second coming is just as certain as His first coming, consider these questions:
Am I living like Jesus is coming back – or am I slumbering?
In what specific areas might Christ be calling me to WAKE UP?
What might God have me do each day to help me WAKE UP?
My prayer for you today is that you are renewed and refreshed by the hope Jesus brings and every area of your life reflects His hope.
Each week this blog will be updated with a word for the week from my current studies.
