Apathy is defined as lack of feeling or emotion or lack of interest or concern. How sad it is for Christians to be characterized this way, with spiritual senses so dulled by worldly influences that we lose focus on our tasks. God says “WAKE UP”!! His return could be today. Prepare for the Lord’s return. Here’s how:
Rom. 13:11-14 “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand:”
1. Repent of all known personal sin which has caused us to leave the fight.
“let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.”
2. Leave all known sin with others such as drinking and immorality.
“Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.”
LESSON - We are to separate ourselves from opportunities for temptation so that we might get back to the work at hand. It is time to return to the field for it is “white unto harvest.”
“But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
