EVERYDAY LIFE WITH JESUS CHRIST NOVEMBER 13, 2019.
TOPIC : AWAKE OH SLEEPER! PART 5
Jonah 1:6 (KJV)
“So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him, What meanest thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy God, if so be that God will think upon us, that we perish not.”
Who are these sleepers?
What are their states?
THE STATE OF THE SLEEPERS.
● They stand at the gate of hell but do not tremble.
We tell you pride will take you to hell, yet you refuse to humble yourself. We tell you worldliness will take you to hell, yet you behave as if you didn’t hear anything.
We tell you, holiness and righteousness but you behave as if you didn’t hear anything. You are like, “I didn’t come for that. I only come for prayer. I want to deal with family battle.”
But you are at the brink of eternity. You are at the edge of hell because you have no Christ in your life.
The Bible says in;
Mark 8:36 (KJV)
“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”
You are a sleeping Christian. They are at the edge of hell but tremble not. The anger of the Lord is burning against them but they do not fear.
● They drink from the worldly cup of pleasure and are intoxicated with the world. They sing worldly music.
You listen to Terry-G; Pasuma; Osupa Saheed; Psquare; Chris Brown etc and claim to be a follower of Christ ?
You drink from the worldly cup of pleasures. You sing the worldly songs of the world. You dance to the tune of the world.
You do not know that there is a way that seemeth right to a man but the way is the way of death.
Proverbs 16:25 (KJV)
“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
What God is expecting from us is the principle of Paul the Apostle. It says in the book of;
Philippians 1:21 (KJV)
“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”
The purpose of your existence is to live for Christ, not to drink from worldly cup of pleasure.
● The sleeping Christians have no power to resist temptation.
When my brother was trying our legs, did we tell him to stop? No! We didn’t know. We only woke up and saw the ropes tied. When you are spiritually asleep, there will not be power to resist temptation.
“He was the one that pushed me.”
“He was the one that lured me.”
It is an indication that you are sleeping because your strength is departed.
● The sleeping Christians have temptation for lust; for greed. They are not contented with what they have. They are like a bird caught in the bait of the enemy.
They have been caught in the fashion of the world. They say they cannot resist the temptation simply because they are asleep.
Spirit of the living God wake us up in Jesus name.
● They sleeping saints are inactive. They are active in the world and in sin but are disabled in righteousness. They can go early to their place of work and come back and watch TV but ate inactive in the Lord.
They give a lot of excuses, “I don’t have much time.”
And the time they are spending watching TV could have been used for God. They spend all the hours and days for themselves.
They are mere professing Christians. They only claim to belong to God but the life of Christ is not in them.
Prayer : oh Lord destroy the seed of spiritual sleep in my life in Jesus Christ’s name.
