Genesis 9 - Key

v24

And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.

I thought of how being intoxicated is kind of like being partly unconscious or asleep. It says, Noah awoke from his wine. Getting drunk, which was sin, brought shame. Also, I have a problem with sleeping too much, which has some similarities to drunkenness.

Application

Ephesians 5:14
Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

I'll strive to get up on time, viewing it as part of the battle for righteousness in my life.
