CHILDREN OF THE DAY
1 THESSALONIANS 5:4-8
4But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. 6So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. 7For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. 8But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.
5: 4-5 God has determined that we cannot know exactly when Christ will return. If we knew the precise date, we might be tempted to be lazy in our work for Christ. Worse yet, we might plan to keep sinning and then turn to God right at the end. Heaven should not be our only goal; we have work to do here, including sharing the Good News of salvation with as many people as we can and strengthening current believers to remain faithful until the end (1 Timothy 6: 12). Christians must keep on doing God’s work until death or until we see the unmistakable return of our Savior.For more on the Christian’s armor, see Ephesians 6: 13-17.Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.
This is a good one, I dont know about anyone else but when i was living worldly, living a life of sin and doin all the things i shoul not do.(sinning) i was definately a night owl. running around thinking NOONE WOULD SEE ME BECAUSE OF THE DARKNESS!!! And maybe they didnt at that exact moment! But when i would be sleeping until late in the day they would know SOMETHING wasnt right. I even had one friend and customer that called me nocturnal!! But JESUS saw it all!!
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure you are a child of the light and your light shines for JESUS CHRIST!!
