Faithful and picked men are needed at the head of the work.  Those who have not had an experience in bearing burdens, and who do not wish to have that experience, should not, on any account, live there.  Men are wanted who will watch for souls as they that must give an account.  Fathers and mothers in Israel are wanted at this important post.  Let the selfish and self-caring, the stingy, covetous souls, find a location where their miserable traits of character will not be so conspicuous.  The more isolated such ones are, the better for the cause of God.  I appeal to the people of God, wherever they may be found:  Awake to your duty.  Take it to heart that we are really living amid the perils of the last days. -- Testimonies, Vol. 2, pp. 467, 468. {ChL 9.1}

 

 
Far more might be accomplished in the work of self-education if we were awake to our own opportunities and privileges. True education means more than the colleges can give. While the study of the sciences is not to be neglected, there is a higher training to be obtained through a vital connection with God. Let every student take his Bible and place himself in communion with the great Teacher. Let the mind be trained and disciplined to wrestle with hard problems in the search for divine truth.  {COL 334.2}

 

 
The formation of character is the work of a lifetime, and it is for eternity. If all could realize this, if they would awake to the thought that we are individually deciding our own destiny for eternal life or eternal ruin, what a change would take place! How differently would this probationary time be occupied, and what different characters would fill our world!  {CG 162.2}
 

Every faculty of those who become affected by this contagious disease -- blind love -- is brought in subjection to it. They seem to be devoid of good sense, and their course of action is disgusting to all who behold it. . . . With many the crisis of the disease is reached in an immature marriage, and when the novelty is past and the bewitching power of love-making is over, one or both parties awake to their true situation. They then find themselves ill-mated, but united for life. Bound to each other by the most solemn vows, they look with sinking hearts upon the miserable life they must lead. They ought then to make the best of their situation, but many will not do this. They will either prove false to their marriage vows or make the yoke which they persisted in placing upon their own necks so very galling that not a few cowardly put an end to their existence.  {AH 84.3}

 

The more the animal passions are indulged, the stronger do they become, and the more violent will be their clamors for indulgence. Let God-fearing men and women awake to their duty. Many professed Christians are suffering with paralysis of nerve and brain because of their intemperance in this direction.  {AH 124.5}

 

If the followers of Christ were awake to duty, there would be thousands where there is one today, proclaiming the gospel in heathen lands. And all who could not personally engage in the work, would yet sustain it with their means, their sympathy, and their prayers. And there would be far more earnest labor for souls in Christian countries. -- Steps to Christ, p. 86.  {ChS 81.6}

 
The Lord is calling upon us to awake to a realization of our responsibilities. God has given to every man his work. Each one may live a life of usefulness. Let us learn all that we can and then be a blessing to others by imparting a knowledge of truth. Let every one do according to his several ability, willingly helping to bear the burdens.  {CH 218.3}

 

                                                          they   must   awake                                                                    

 

God has given me a message for His people. They must awake, spread their tents, and enlarge their borders. My brethren and sisters, you have been bought with a price, and all that you have and are is to be used to the glory of God and for the good of your fellow men. Christ died on the cross to save the world from perishing in sin. He asks your co-operation in this work. You are to be His helping hand. With earnest, unwearying effort you are to seek to save the lost. Remember that it was your sins that made the cross necessary.--Testimonies, vol. 7, p. 9.  {ChS 109.3}
