The call of the Gospel is more than just a light that exposes darkness, it is a transforming light. The one who hears the gospel call and responds is literally transformed into light. We must preach the gospel with confidence in its inherent power to transform lives. We must not be afraid to call the dead to be raised, sleepers to awake, sinner to repentance!
Awake you sleeping,
arise from the dead,
and Christ will give you light!
