Have you ever had the experience of driving for several hours, and someone wakes up in the car and says, “Have we been through (a certain town)?” And although you’re driving, you just can’t remember. I drove through that whole town and don’t remember a thing. We can live our lives like that – half-asleep, daydreaming through life. Jesus says, no, stay awake. Don’t live your life half asleep.
