Awake, you who sleep!

Until God’s Law comes in the hand of the Captain of our salvation (see Heb. 2:10), we are asleep in our sins. It strikes us and says, “Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light” (Eph. 5:14). It is God’s Law that causes the sinner to revive and makes him aware of his plight. It reveals to him that he will perish unless God intervenes with His great mercy.

Jonah 1:6 So the captain came to him, and said to him, “What do you mean, sleeper? Arise, tcall on your God; perhaps your God will consider us, so that we may not perish.”
