Our wake up call

+ First Sunday in Advent+
November 28, 2010
The hour has come for you to wake up from sleep. – Romans 13:11

1. We wake up by casting off the works of darkness
a. Excess and immorality – golden calf; Baal Peor; David; today.
b. Quarreling and jealousy – Korah’s rebellion; Korea; C.S. Lewis The Great Divorce

2. We wake up by walking properly as in the daytime
a. Moderation and chastity, compliments and contentment – power of praise!
b. Put on the Lord Jesus Christ – a sacramental, liturgical spirituality
