Awaken 21 - Day 1
“The child is not dead, but asleep.” Jesus spoke this phrase to a large crowd gathered to mourn the death of a young girl. When the crowd heard this phrase they mocked and laughed. To those in the crowd, death was final and there was no hope otherwise. But when Jesus shows up, death is not the end. When Jesus gets involved eternal death may as well be temporary sleep. Jesus went into the little girls room, and brought her out of her sleep into life. Many in our time, have also fallen into a deep sleep from which no one and nothing could rouse them. We need Jesus, the great awakener, to wake us from our slumber. In him we find our hope and our salvation.
Our generation is not dead, but asleep, and the great awakener is still working. He is calling us to wake from our sin, and arise into his glorious grace. That through our lives all may meet the One who gives life. As you read through this 21 day devotional allow the Word of God to awaken you to the reality of Christ, that you may arise and do His work on the earth.
