Key Text: Mark 14:32-42
On the night before his crucifixion, Jesus took his disciples to Gethsemane and asked them to keep watch with him as he wrestled in prayer and prepared for the things to come. Three times he prayed to the Father and three times he found the disciples sleeping.
As we read this text, we can seemingly hear the disappointment in Jesus voice as he speaks to his disciples and says, “Couldn’t you keep watch for one hour?” and “Are you still sleeping and resting? Enough!”
I believe that we too are at a critical time in the plan of God. The question is, will we be found sleeping when Jesus returns, or will we WAKE UP and take an active role in what is taking place in these last days?
For us, in these days in which we are living, I believe there are three things we need to wake up to.
1. To your spiritual responsibilities
2. The enemy is at hand
3. Gods plans are just beginning
