In light of eternity, we should not be asleep, and numb to the truths of God, but should be enlivened, emboldened, awakened to God and His mission.

The Day of the Lord is coming, where Christ will return to judge the lost and redeem the saints. The lost will be surprised, but we, the Church, ought to eagerly await the return of Christ, and live our lives in light of its reality. What does this mean? To be awake, aware, active, alive, sober, passionate in our pursuit of God, and passionate in our desire to live for the Kingdom and Mission of God.
