Keep alert with an attitude of thanksgiving.
The only way to keep alert is through actions of righteousness (Matt. 6:1-18). A person with an alert mind has a disciplined body. Giving, prayer and fasting are actions that keep Christians available, alert, and attentive. When we give, we are spiritually stretched and must rely on God. When we pray, we are spiritually sustained and become aligned with God. When we fast, we are spiritually strengthened and find power in God. “Let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober” (1 Thess. 5:6).
Pray to live with abundant life.
