Are you awake? Are you awake, or are you sleepwalking? I think sometimes we just sort of stumble through life, really unconsciously. I think sometimes we just sleepwalk. Now, one of the things God’s saying to us is, “Wake up.” One of the things God’s saying to us is, “Stop sleepwalking through life.” You see, God doesn’t want us to be sleepwalking through life. God doesn’t want us to sleep. He wants us to wake up. He wants us to live life very consciously.
If you borrow your spouse’s car, when you take it back, do you take it back with the gas tank empty, or do you take it back with the gas tank full? It’s a little thing, right? But that tells me if we’re awake, it tells me if we’re asleep, it tells me if we’re aware, it tells me if we’re conscious, it tells us tells me if we’re unconscious.
You see, God wants us to live a life of incredible awareness. When you walk into the room, any room, he wants you to notice who’s the person in the room who’s suffering the most. He wants you to notice that person so you can go over, you can love on that person, you can encourage that person, you can help that person come out of their their pain, their suffering, so that they leave that room in a different state than what they came into.
Christians, you and me, we’re called to change the world. One moment at a time, one day at a time, one situation at a time. But we’ve got to stop sleepwalking. We’ve got to wake up. We’ve got to wake up. And in order to wake up, we absolutely have to know what the biggest lie in the history of Christianity is, we have to kick the biggest lie in the history of Christianity out of our lives, and we have to help other people to do the same thing.
