Awake To Righteousness.

Key Verse

“Awake to righteousness, and sin not …” 1 Corinthians 15:34a

Text — 1 Corinthians 15:28-34


To be awake is to be alert, it also means to be watchful. It is not a time to sleep or slumber. Anabel was very excited when her dad informed her that they will be traveling abroad for holidays during her long vacation. She began to prepare ahead, putting all the necessary things in place so as not to forget anything. The day before the trip, she could not sleep as she was awake throughout the night waiting for the morning to break so they can embark on the journey. Finally, she got to the airport on time and boarded her flight to their destination.

The Bible tells us the story of the wise and foolish virgins, why were some of the virgins foolish? It was because they did not make adequate preparation for the journey. The oil in their lamps was not enough, in the process of going to get oil, the master came to take them home and they were left behind.
Do not be like the foolish virgins who did not make preparation for their journey to heaven. Be like the wise virgins and also like Anabel in the story who made adequate preparations for her journey.

This is not the time to sleep or slumber in sin because no one knows when the trumpet will sound, and if the trumpet sounds and you are not prepared, you will end up in regret. To avoid regret, what kind of preparation are you to make? It is very simple, you must realize that you are a sinner, confess your sins to Jesus, promise never to go back to them anymore, and finally keep yourself holy in readiness for Christ’s coming.
