Numb 8:24 and Mark 13:27 "Stay Awake" (March 12)
Stay Awake. Mark 13:27. Jesus is coming back to gather His elect from the four winds. What we do matters only inasmuch as who we are. We can outserve everyone but if it is not coming from a good place in our heart, it's clanging cymbals. Whether we are like the Levites in Number 8:24 who faithfully did their duties of service from the time they were 25 years old up to 50 years old or if we are waiting to age 65 to retire, do what God has called you to do. We have this moment to become the person God is calling us to be. Every day. Fresh new slate. So what does it look like to stay awake today? In a couple of hours, I'll be under anesthesia. No way I could stay awake. Oh, it means so much more. Alive in our soul. Leaning on the One Who holds all things together. So, what does staying awake look like for me?
