Putting on the Wakeful One

Today’s postmodern world is dominated by fear, yet it is open to ancient wisdom and the spiritual. How should the church respond to the opportunities this presents? As disciples of the Wakeful One, what comfort and insight can we bring to the world around us?

In Putting on the Wakeful One, Shaun Lambert shows how the Jesus of Mark’s Gospel modelled watchfulness, the ancient practice of attunement to the Holy Spirit. Ever aware of the Holy Spirit’s leading, Jesus was able to discern the life-changing Kairos moments of the Spirit’s work and to offer hope and healing to the lost people around Him.

Going right to the heart of what it means to be a disciple, Shaun reveals how practising watchfulness in our own lives is essential to experiencing Christlike transformation and developing what has been called the prophetic imagination. Only then will the church learn to read the signs of the times and be intimately attuned to the Holy Spirit’s purposes. Putting on the Wakeful One will empower us to bring the hope of the kingdom of God to a fearful, seeking world.
