"Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you may not enter into temptation." (NASB)
STRONGS HEBREW/GREEK ORIGINS
"Why are you sleeping (katheudo: to fall asleep; drop off to sleep; euphemistically, to be dead; to yield to sloth and sin)? Get up and pray that you may not enter into temptation (peirasmos: an experiment, attempt, trial, proving; the trial of man's fidelity, integrity, virtue, constancy; an enticement to sin)."
Why are you yielding yourself in sleep? Get up and pray that you may not enter into temptation and be enticed to sin.
I believe that just as Jesus posed this question to the disciples, He asks us as well. It is time for us to come awake and be alert. Sometimes we look around and find ourselves neck deep in sin and error – as if it seemingly snuck up on us. This is why we must stay awake and aware of what is going on around us, being careful not to enter into temptation. Today, as you go about your day, have your eyes wide open, spiritually speaking. There are things that you must see coming and avoid. Awaken!
