I want to be woke. This is not a statement on social justice or politics. I am talking about spiritual wokeness. Apart from Christ we are not just sick in our sins, we are dead. Ephesians 2:1, “And you were dead in your trespasses and sins.” Those without Jesus are dead, not woke. When we follow Jesus, we are fully alive, yet we don’t always live as we need to. We need to wake up. Romans 13:11, “And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.” Do you know Jesus? If so, are you awake from your slumber? If you are truly woke, you will view all of life, whether social justice, politics, or COVID-19, in a way that God sees it. You will know that Jesus is the answer. Get woke!

Well said, Jason! We were just talking about this with our children the other night as we read Mark 13. Verse 9 says to “stay alert” and our family discussed the many topics you just listed. Thank you, Jason!
