Life Wisdom

Do you know what Napoleon said about China?  “There lies a sleeping giant, and let him sleep, because if he awakens, he will shake the world.”

And I believe the church is just that: a sleeping giant.  We’re asleep because we have been chloroformed by the spirit of this age.

We’re bombarded on every side by all kinds of amusement.  Do you know what amuse means?  It’s a combination of two words.  Muse means to think, and the alpha prefix in front of it means “not to.”

We are a generation that is amusing ourselves into oblivion.  And it’s time to wake up!

If this were your last day on earth, how would you spend it? In amusement? Or in evangelism?
