You’ve probably been tempted to fall asleep during a sermon or two, but have you ever heard an entire message on this topic?
We spend roughly one-third of our lives asleep. That’s a sobering thought. Sleep is referred to many times in Scripture. This shouldn’t surprise us, because God created sleep.
In this first message from a series called Sanctifying the Ordinary, C.J. Mahaney speaks to Covenant Life Church with a hope that they will go to sleep each night with a biblically informed perspective. He leads the congregation in a study of what Scripture has to say about sleep.
- Long sermon
This is a very wordy sermon. If you are intrigued by the sleep aspect of this sermon, start at minute 12.
- Perspective Change
I agree with the logical perspective about worrying about life can cause you not to get much sleep and if you trust God with those worries then you shouldn't lose sleep at night. And that sleep comes from the father. I didn't hear many verses though on how the bible states that is the case although i do know them only a few were mentioned to the best of my memory after sleeping.
