Awake in 2010—Ephesians 5:13-18?

13But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, 14for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: “Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Ephesians 5:13-14


God Says I Am to Wake Up and ……

·         Realize My [time is limited]

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise… Ephesians 5:15

4“Show me, O Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life. 5You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each man’s life is but a breath. Selah 6Man is a mere phantom as he goes to and fro: He bustles about, but only in vain; he heaps up wealth, not knowing who will get it. Psalm 39:4-6

·         Use Everyone of My [opportunities]

Making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:16

9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:9-10

·         Understand His [will for my life]

Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Ephesians 5:17

Who is wise? He will realize these things. Who is discerning? He will understand them. The ways of the Lord are right; the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them. Hosea 14:9

·         Fill My Body with [his holy spirit]

Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Ephesians 5:18

10But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness. 11And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you. Romans 8:10-11

key: Time is limited, Opportunities, Will for my life, His Holy Spirit
