Napoleon's soldiers often used to sleep on the march. They were moving onward, yet asleep & indifferent to all around them.
Thousands are like them in spiritual matters.
They are 'passing onward, quickly passing' in the journey of life, yet indifferent to their need of eternal life in Christ & to the claims of God upon their lives.
Ep 5:14 (WEB): Therefore he says, “Awake, you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
“Good conduct arises out of good doctrine.” - John Stott.
“A Christian ought to feel that when a need arises, it is his duty to fill that need.” - Jack Hyles.
