We are ordered to be perfect, and we fail. Jesus then brings perfection to us. We are ordered to sin no more, and we sin again. Jesus then brings innocence to us. We are ordered to love, and we hate. Jesus then brings love to us. We are ordered to keep awake, and we fall asleep. Jesus then brings us the waking hour. Let us fix our gaze on the hand of God, in anticipation that God will hold our hearts in his grasp. Trusting in the strength of the Lord, let us keep awake.
