    Today we’re going to look at the danger of sleeping spiritually. The scriptures indicate three reasons THIS IS NO TIME TO SLEEP: we're in a storm, we're in the presence of the enemy, and Jesus needs us now!

    God has a Nineveh for every one of us -- a place we don't want to go; a command we don't want to obey. Going to Nineveh is unpopular, it will cost us, it doesn't make sense and it's hard. But God's purpose in dealing with us is to save many souls.
