Are You Still Sleeping?

sleepingHe came and found them sleeping, and He said to Peter: “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not watch one hour”? Mark 14:37. Three times Jesus went, and when He came back found all three of His disciples asleep. They were not able to support Him in prayer, and watch out for Him. He ask us the same thing: “keep watch” for you do not know when He will return, but are we watching? Are we still awake? Do not let distractions stop us from focussing on what is important. Stay awake, and do not be overcome by sleep; wake up, and pray that you may not enter into temptation (Luke 22:45-46). No matter what happens around you, do not give in to it, may you not be found sleeping when Jesus returns,  and call you by name. God bless you.
