Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light” (Ephesians 5:14).

Have you fallen prey to this deadly sleep? This is shown by whether you see the plight of the Church and of the world or not. Many believers have fallen asleep and do not realize what is taking place around them; they are simultaneously blind and deaf. To put it in Biblical language, they are “rich and satisfied.” The risen Lord puts it in these words, “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” (Revelation 3:17). Wake up! To be awake means to see your sins as God sees them—which is terrible! The result is inner brokenness and repentance, but then revival takes place. We must also know, however, what revival is not. Revival is not a divine miracle. If it were, we would have no responsibility, for then everything would depend on God. The responsibility for revival in the family, in the Church, lies with you and me, each one of us personally. The question is whether or not we want it. God wants to send revival!
