Do You Sleep or Sleepwalk?

You may be interested to know that there are some people who do not sleep when they are supposed to sleep and they sleep while they walk. This may seem to be happening in the body - on a physical level. But are you aware there are people who sleepwalk, mentally and spiritually?

Have you not seen people sleeping during work? Or during attending a class or meetings? Donít those people, who sleep at odd hours, miss out on important moments of life? Can they enjoy good health by their sleepwalk?

Sleep is a beautiful experience of nature, very essential for a good health. It is very necessary for both body and mind. But can we sleep at every time? Does the habit of sleeping the whole time help your health? Will it not be harmful? Sleep is beautiful and healthy when it comes at the right time.

Sleepwalk in life situations

There are people who sleep through life in other ways. They are not bothered about what happens around them. They just close their eyes. They are unaware of the political issues or social issues around them. They are least bothered about the needs of others, who really deserve their concern. There are people who remain aloof from people seeking their attention. These people are sleeping through their life, through relationships and through faith.

Sleepwalking Christians

Every Christian is a light of the world. He/she is called by God to walk in the light of Christ and be a light to others. A Christian has the light of Christ in himself/herself - given as a special gift from God. He/she is a light in the family or in a society. If others cannot see or experience the light of a Christian, it means that he/she cannot dispel the darkness around. He/she is not reflecting the light of Christ.
A Christian life cannot be like sleepwalking. It has its own responsibilities - responsibility of enlightening others.

"For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visibleóand everything that is illuminated becomes a light." (Ephesians 5: 8-13)

Christian life is not a sleepwalk. Let this season of Lent open the eyes of Christians.
