“THE DANGER OF FALLING ASLEEP”

TEXT: ACTS 20:6-12

INTRO: NOTHING IN GOD’S PRECIOUS WORD IS WITHOUT EDIFICATION..... SURELY GOD HAS PUT THIS STORY IN HIS WORD TO HELP US IN SOME WAY.

THIS MORNING I WANT TO PREACH A MESSAGE ENTITLED, “THE DANGER OF FALLING ASLEEP”, OR “ IF YOU SNOOZE, YOU LOSE”. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD WHO HAVE CLOSED THEIR EYES TO THE THINGS OF THE LORD. AS A RESULT, THE BLESSINGS OF GOD HAVE SLIPPED RIGHT PAST THEM AS THEY SLEPT THROUGH LIFE. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY HAVE BEEN HYPNOTIZED BY THE LURING POWERS OF THE WORLD AND HAVE CONSIDERED “THE GOOD LIFE” TO BE NOTHING BUT A DREAM. BUT LET ME SAY, THE CHRISTIAN LIFE AND THE BLESSINGS THAT COME OUR WAY ARE NOT A PART OF SOME SUPERNATURAL DREAM. GOD REALLY DOES BLESS THOSE WHO SEEK A BLESSING.

THERE ARE MANY CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE BEEN SLEEP WALKING THROUGH CHRISTIANITY. WHEN TIME COMES FOR GOD’S PEOPLE TO STAND UP AND FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT, MANY CHRISTIANS FALL ASLEEP AND MISS OUT ON THE BLESSINGS THAT COME FROM BEING A FAITHFUL SOLDIER OF THE LORD. FOR EXAMPLE.....

1. GOD’S PEOPLE WERE SNOOZING WHEN ONE WOMAN, WHO BY THE WAY WAS VERY MUCH AWAKE, SINGLE HANDLE REMOVED THE WORD OF GOD AND PRAYER FROM THE SCHOOLS.

2. THOUSANDS OF UNBORN BABIES ARE MURDERED EVERY DAY BECAUSE GOD’S PEOPLE HAVE GONE TO SLEEP.

3. MOST RECENT, THE ONLY PEOPLE STANDING UP DO FIGHT THE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS ARE CIVIC GROUPS AND POLITICIANS , BUT THE CHURCH HAS GONE NIGHT, NIGHT.

THE BIBLE TELLS US, THAT THE SAME POWER THAT RAISED UP JESUS FROM THE DEAD LIVES IN SIDE OF US. WE OUGHT TO BE SETTING MATTERS IN THE SCHOOLHOUSE, COURTHOUSE, AND FOR THAT MATTER THE WHITE HOUSE.

*BUT THIS MORNING I WANT TO LOOK AT THE SUBJECT, “THE DANGER OF FALLING ASLEEP”.

I. THE CAUSE FOR HIS FALLING ASLEEP

A. HE WAS CARELESS

1. IN HIS COMPANY

*PS. 1:1-2--BLESSED IS THE MAN THAT WALKETH NOT IN THE COUNSEL OF THE UNGODLY, NOR STANDETH IN THE WAY OF SINNERS, NOR SITTETH IN THE SEAT OF THE SCORNFUL. (2) BUR HIS DELIGHT IS IN THE LAW OF THE LORD: AND IN HIS LAW DOTH HE MEDITATE DAY AND NIGHT.

2.IN HIS CARES OF THIS LIFE

a. HE THOUGHT MORE OF THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD MORE THAN THE THINGS OF GOD.

3. IN HIS CARELESS ATTENDANCE

a. HE WAS GOING OUT MORE THAN COMING IN. (GOD’S HOUSE, GOD’S WORK)

II. THE CONSEQUENCES OF HIS FALLING ASLEEP

A. THERE WAS PAIN (VS. 9)

1. THERE IS PAIN WHEN YOU GET OUT OF GOD’S WILL.

2. FAMILY PAIN

3. CHURCH PAIN

B. PUBLIC WORSHIP WAS DISRUPTED.

III. NOTICE SOME THINGS THAT EUTYCHUS LOST BY FALLING ASLEEP.

A. HE LOST PREPARATION (VS.7)

1.WE NEED TO WAKE UP AND GET PREPARED FOR THE BATTLE.

a. PRAY

b. STUDY

B. HE LOST OUT ON GOD’S MESSAGE (VS.9)

1. SOME CHRISTIANS JUST DON’T GET IT .

(PREACH TO YOUR BLUE AND THEY STILL WANT GET IT.)

2.GOD’S GOT SOMETHING FOR ALL OF US. BUT IF WE SLEEP WE MISS OUT ON IT.

C. HE LOST HIS LIFE.

1. MANY WILL LOSE THEIR LIFE AND DIE AND GO TO HELL BECAUSE THEY HAVE SLEPT WHEN GOD WAS TRYING TO GIVE THEM THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS.

2. HOW MANY HAVE LOST THEIR LIFE BECAUSE GOD’S PEOPLE WERE ASLEEP WHEN GOD WAS GIVING THE MESSAGE?
