Re: Wake Up

There is a great need for a spiritual awakening in the evangelical world. Time to wake up, because the Lord's coming is certainly near, and many, we fear, were never less prepared. Time to lament and do soul- searching in prayer, because churches in search of happiness and success (measured by attendance figures) are increasingly willing to follow the consumer-oriented society. What does the consumer want? Find out and give it to him, and you'll be a success....Men want to enjoy themselves, be comfortable, be happy, but God wants them to enjoy Him, to be spiritual, to be godly. --Carl Knott, missionary to Spain

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. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts. (Rom 13:11-14)

Therefore He says: "Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light." See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. (Eph 5:14-16) (VW)
