Spiritual Slumber

And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. Romans 13:11

Are you in a Spiritual Slumber? The word “slumber” means to sleep or be in a state of inactivity. Often in our lives we can start to become complacent. We go through the motions and do what the bare minimum we have to do.

But as Christians we must remember Jesus said he would “Return as a Thief in The Night” (Revelation 16:15) meaning Jesus will return at a day and time when nobody expects him. As Jesus also said the day and hour nobody knows of his return except God (Matthew 24:36) So its important we live every day as if Jesus were to return.

As we know its normal for us to occasionally lose our fire, or get worn out or down on ourselves. That’s why it’s also very important that we encourage one another and build each other up (1 Thessalonians 5:11) Its equally important to reach out to fellow Christians and give them some support and encouragement periodically.

Remember that your Christian faith is not a sprint but a long race. Prepare yourself physically and spiritually to press on toward the prize and finish the race (1 Corinthians 9:24) Don’t fall into a “Spiritual Slumber” fix your eyes on Christ in Jesus Name amen

    Yes! It is important that we keep our eyes on the prize and not to become weary in well doing! sometimes this journey can seem lonely, or repetitive but we must remember that He is with us, and will strengthen and guide us! We have to stay ready!
