Slumber Party

PSALM 121

 

The term slumber party has always amused me. You all get into your pajamas, go to your friend’s house, and spend the night eating, watching a movie, and sharing stories with each other. You do everything except sleep! It’s more like a party without slumber.

 

As we grow older, these slumber parties are replaced by all-nighters as we prepare for exams and other academic requirements. We have our friends come over to stay up all night with us—not to share fun conversations but to work on papers due the next day. We gulp down cups and cups of coffee just so we don’t doze off and miss the deadline.

 

When life goes beyond slumber parties and thesis deadlines, it’s still not uncommon to lose sleep. A sick parent, an unresolved relationship conflict, waiting for a job offer, and anxiety about the future often rob us of sleep and quality rest. For an overthinker and worrier like me, sleep sometimes becomes a luxury.

 

In times when getting shut-eye seems unheard of—and the uncertainty of the next minute jolts us awake—we can choose to lift our eyes to our Lord and Savior. Jesus watches over us.

 

When situations are beyond our control, staying awake through the night won’t be of any help. Instead, we can rest because Jesus promises to ultimately keep us from all harm; we are held in His love and presence as He works all things for the good of those who love Him (Psalm 121:7; Romans 8:28, 38-39).

 

God never sleeps, so we can sleep soundly in His embrace. • Jennifer A. Sun

 

• Why can the Lord be trusted to take care of His people even when we are facing big problems (Psalm 121:2; 145:9; 1 Peter 5:7; Revelation 21:1-5)?

 

• God calls us to rest because we’re human (Deuteronomy 5:12-15). We can’t keep going and going because we’re not God. Resting also reminds us that nothing we can do will earn God’s favor; that’s a gift He gives through Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-10; Hebrews 4:9-10). How do these truths affect your perspective on resting?

 

He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. Psalm 121:3-4 (NLT)

Repent!

ACTS 2:37-41

 

What does it mean to repent?

Often we think of repentance as turning away from the wrong things we do every day. And this can be a result of repentance. But repentance in the biblical sense is less about what we turn away from and more about who we turn to: Jesus Christ.

 

On the cross, Jesus destroyed our sin. In His resurrection, He defeated death. He is the king over the entire universe, exalted to the heavens. If we believe that He is Lord and that God has raised Him from the dead, we will be saved (Romans 10:9).

 

This is the repentance the Bible speaks of. Not saying, “Whoops, I gossiped again. I had better repent of that right away.” Instead, we say, “I turn to the risen and living Lord and worship Him alone.” We turn to Christ, our King and the One who saves us from sin.

 

And when we turn to Christ, all the things we have turned away from—and all the lies we have believed—will ultimately lose their grip on us.

 

When we repent and turn to Christ, we are putting our faith in the promise that we now belong to Jesus, even though turning away from sin will be a lifelong process and even though we will fail time and time again. We are given the promise that Christ will rescue us from death itself in the resurrection. And we are brought into His kingdom, in which there will be no false gods, no lies, and no sin. • Kevin Zeller

 

• Why should Jesus be the focus of our repentance?

 

• Have you turned away from sin and to Jesus? What questions do you have about what this means? Who is a trusted Christian in your life you can bring those questions to?

Peter said to them, “Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38 (WEB)
