It’s Time to Wake Up

Passage: Romans 13:11-14
Service Type:

Today, our topic is not about physical sleep; it's about spiritual slumber, hearing God's alarm that it's time to wake up and know what time it is. The apostle Paul has been talking about our relationships... to God, to ourselves, to each other, to our enemies, to government, and then the overarching principle, to everybody. But in our passage today, there's an urgency or a sense of haste to do all of this. Paul is telling us that the responsibilities mentioned here are not to be put off for another day but are to be carried out faithfully as we wait for our Lord.
