The Snooze Alarm

People's infatuation with the snooze alarm started in 1956 when General Electric-Telechron first marketed a Clock with a Snooze Alarm Function. Since then, it has been the cause of many frantic mornings for millions of people worldwide. It allows us to stay comfortable in our beds for just a little longer. It doesn’t really affect other people that much.

Let me ask you a question. Have you been hitting the spiritual snooze alarm? What do I mean?

Last month, we discussed the need to fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission. We shared how we need to reach the lost so that they experience eternity in Heaven instead of hell. Often we think we have plenty of time to reach out to those we love to share the amazing truth of Christ’s redemption for our sins. We know we need to share the Gospel with them, and we have every intention of doing it…someday.

So many people don’t want to take the time to do the work God has called them to do.

They know God is calling them to mentor teens, but who has the time?

They believe God wants them to talk to their neighbors about God, but they are just so busy.

Then there is the all too common trap of “someday.”

“Someday I’m going to take that trip.”

“Someday I’m going to write that book and share my testimony.”

“Someday I’m going to take that step of faith and lead the team.”

And yet, too often, “someday” is just a way of avoiding their calling.

Rather than investing the time necessary to fully walk in their calling and follow God’s plan for their lives, they just keep putting it off.

What I’ve seen far too often is that “someday” eventually turns into never. Instead, of waiting until “someday” to invest the time to do what God has called you to do, you need to obey the instructions in Hebrews and start investing the time to follow God’s call on your life today. (Hebrews 3:13) Remember, tomorrow isn’t promised, but there is still the opportunity to invest today into following God’s plan for your life. When you snooze, they lose.

Memory Verse: But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. (Hebrews 3:13, NIV)
