“While the Bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept”

Matthew 25:26

What an anomaly! Drowsing on the verge of eternity!

A Christian is one who, in contrast to the unregenerate, has been awakened from the sleep of death in trespasses and sins, made to realize the unspeakable awfulness of endless misery in Hell, and the ineffable joy of everlasting bliss in Heaven; and thereby brought to recognize the seriousness and solemnity of life! A Christian is one who has been experientially taught the worthlessness of all mundane things — and the preciousness of divine things! He has turned his back on Vanity Fair and has started out on his journey to the Celestial City. He has been quickened into newness of life, and supplied with the most powerful incentives to “press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Phil 3:14).
