Every morning my alarm clock gives me a choice. I can either get out of bed or hit the snooze button. Decisions, decisions! Should I get out of bed or just lay here for a few more minutes?
Our spiritual life is like that, too. We can deal with things as they come or we can just kick the can down the road and worry about things later.
Are you a spiritual snoozer? Do you keep putting things off until you have to deal with them later? The problem with that is that spiritual problems tend to build up. If we keep putting things off, we end up having to deal with them in a crisis moment that is usually more than we can handle by ourselves.
What happens if you keep hitting your snooze button on your alarm clock? Eventually, you will run out of time and you will either have to get out of bed or be late. If you keep on snoozing, you will miss work altogether.
There are parallels with your Christian walk. You can see what I’m getting at, can’t you? So let me say this: Get out of bed and get your spiritual walk started! Stop putting off your Bible reading ... pray when you think of it instead of waiting for the right time ... go to church ... talk to your pastor.
"Do this, 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."
