Awake, O Sleeper Vest
“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light” (Ephesians 5:14). For many on that day in Golgotha, the cross was the end. And if that were true, then everything we are doing as Christians would be pointless. Yet, we know it’s only the beginning. The resurrection is the pivotal element, the foundation, the moment everything changed.
The coordinates here show the temporary resting place of Jesus –the tomb– where His body lay for 3 whole days. Where is your tomb? Are you still buried in it or has Jesus resurrected you? Your grave is temporary. Just as Jesus once was laid to rest and rose again, so are we called to rise. For some, these coordinates simply mark an end – but as Christians, they mark our beginning.
