Awake

Happy to announce James Randle Cooke has arrived and everyone is doing pretty well. I’ve been able to sit for an unnervingly peaceful amount of time in the hospital and have a bit of a read. 

As a consequence, I have been mulling on these:

 ‘Signs you have not experienced gospel wakefulness:

1.  The gospel doesn’t interest you- or it does, but not as much as other religious subjects

2. You take nearly everything personally

3. You frequently worry about what other people think. 

4. You treat inconveniences like minor ( or major ) tragedies. 

5. You are impatient with people

6. In general, you have trouble seeing the fruit of the Spirit in your life ( Gal. 5:22-23 )

7. The Word of God holds little interest

8. You have great difficulty forgiving

9. You are told frequently by a spouse, close friend, or other family members that you are too “clingy” or too controlling. 

10. The idea of gospel centrality makes no sense to you. 

Gospel wakefulness, p 72-73
