WHEN THE SPIRIT SAYS “RISE!”
While the Bridegroom delayed, they all slumbered and slept.”
For many of us…
…our spiritual awakening has been followed by a long spiritual slumber.
Outwardly we kept going through the motions.
Inwardly our hearts were distracted.
Our urgency was gone.
But at midnight there was a cry raised, “Behold the Bridegroom! Go out to meet him!”
When the Spirit says, “Rise!”
It’s high time to wake up.
Those who were ready went in with him to the marriage, and the door was shut.
Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, “Lord, Lord, open to us!”
But he replied, “Truly, truly I say to you, I do not know you.”
Watch, therefore, for you know nether the day nor the hour.
It’s high time for us to turn from our distractions, and focus on the one thing needful.
