Wake Up

Years ago, Marilynn and I were driving down a country road somewhere in the Carolinas, and we saw a church sign that read: “The devil ain’t ever too busy to rock the cradle of a sleeping backslider.”

What does this mean?

A lot of people are sleep-walking through life. They allow their lustful urges to go unabated. They refuse to engage in this spiritual battle we have with the enemy.

So, if you’re just living your life for the purpose of eating, drinking, and being merry, what's the devil going to do with you? How will he treat you?

That’s easy. He’ll just keep rocking your cradle to keep you asleep. Keeping you on life’s sidelines so you’re no threat to him in the game of life. Totally ineffective.

Therefore, be alert (1 Thessalonians 5:6). Though we don’t know the day nor the hour of Jesus’s imminent return (Matthew 24:36), we are to be ready. Awake.

Not allowing the devil to keep rocking our cradle and keep us asleep.
