And this do, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. - ROMANS 13:11

My great hope was that the guards at the military base didn’t shoot me as I sped up to the sentry post. That Easter I was invited to preach a sunrise service for 40,000 soldiers and their families at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. The service was to start at 5:15 a.m. At 5:30 a.m. Jo Beth shook me awake. “The alarm didn’t go off!” she said. By God’s grace I wasn’t fired on as I raced through the gate, and arrived at the platform just as the music preceding my sermon was underway.

Many hearts are sleeping in this day. The hands of history’s clocks are moving with the inevitability of our clock that Easter morning. The moment known to the Father alone, when the Son will rise over the world is drawing near. Don’t let the moment catch you asleep. Awaken your heart to His truth this day. Don’t miss the Big Event on the horizon!

Is the greatest happening in history going to pass you by? Allow God to awaken your heart to spiritual truth.
