In a general sense, our God awakens us from death ( or from sleep ) in the way he awoke Lazarus from the grave. Lazarus had been dead for four days and Jesus awoke him as from sleep.

This He said, and after that He said to them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I go, so that I may awaken him out of sleep.”

                                   - John 11 verse 11

We, who were dead in our sins, are awoken to life by our Lord when the debt of our iniquities is paid for by Jesus' blood and we pass from death to life.

Once we are alive in Him, we are filled with the Holy Spirit who then awakens us day to day to engage in learning the ways of the Spirit so that we become able ministers in the things of the kingdom of God.

The Lord GOD has given Me the tongue of disciples, That I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple. 

                               - Isaiah 50 verse 4

The progression into service in the Kingdom of God is to be generally awakened from death to life and then be awoken from slumber at every opportunity to learn from our Lord the ways to His righteous Kingdom.

Bless the Lord.
