Quotes Worth Pondering – George Whitfield


Watch carefully over thy heart, O Christian; and whenever thou perceivest thyself to be falling into a spiritual slumber, say to it, as Christ to his disciples, “Arise (my soul) why sleepest thou?”

What answer would you give to the question, “what are the causes of a spiritual slumber?” Here are a few that come to my mind: boredom, entanglement in sin, neglect of fellowship with believers, avoiding the voice of God – whether it be reading Scripture of preaching. If you find yourself in a spiritual slumber take some time to figure out why this might be true and then resolve to WAKE UP!
