It means to wake from sleep. It’s a state of being. Jesus called us to live with a sense of spiritual urgency, awake and prepared for Him and His purposes. If there's been a season where the church might have grown tired and sleepy to its purposes it was easily could have been the time of covid precautions.

We hear God calling us to awake to the calling He has for us as a church in the year ahead. A call to be spiritually awake to God’s presence and purposes. A call to be awake to who we are called to be as a church. Awake to the great resources God has given us for life and godliness.
