Wake on Up from Your Slumber

All these victims stand in line for

Crumbs that fall from the table

Just enough to get by

All the while your invitation

Wake on up from your slumber

Baby open up your eyes

Needtobreathe, Slumber

 

All too often we settle for crumbs, don’t we? God invites us to dine with him at his holy table, but instead we crouch in the corner scooping up the crumbs that fall to the floor. God wants us to know him deeply and intimately, and he invites us to do so through the study of his Word. Instead, we settle for the scraps provided to us by others. God invites us to live out a bold, blessed, glorious life that honors his kingdom, and instead we settle for comfortable. Crumbs are easy. Crumbs are accessible. Crumbs leave us with less responsibility. But don’t you want more than that?

What is keeping you from boldly approaching God’s table and claiming the promises he has made to you? What is keeping you from living the life he has called you to live? What is stopping you from using your passion–the passion that aches like fire inside your bones–to save the world?

Your invitation still stands. Live a bold life worthy of the calling you have received.

Wake on up from your slumber. Open up your eyes.
