As we mentioned earlier we are better off awake than asleep. This is why Jesus came. This is God’s reason behind giving us the Scriptures. He wants us to be awake – and alive!
“…walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.”
Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead you should expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by many in secret.
But all things become visible when exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible IS light. For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” – Ephesians 5
