"A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep—" (Proverbs 6:10, NKJV)
You sit in your car on a cold evening with the heater on the motor running; the next day they find you dead behind the wheel. Carbon monoxide doesn’t warn you. It makes you a little drowsy…then a little more drowsy…then you sleep…then you die.Is this the story of your spiritual life? You gradually lose your energy and slowly yet surely the motivation subsides. Before you realise it you are spiritually dead.
The apostle Paul said, "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." (Romans 13:11-12, NKJV)
