From the sermon “Wake Up and Stay Woke!”
by Rev. Dr. Michael W. Waters
At times like these, when the church is needed the most, the church is slumbering. And a wake-up call is undeniably in order. It’s time for the alarm clock to ring.
When the church is woke, new life comes to dead situations and overcomes fatal circumstances.
When the church is woke, signs and wonders follow.
When the church is woke, healing and deliverance take place.
When the church is woke, the people are not condemned, but they are empowered.
Church, in times like these, we must wake up! And stay woke!
