~Children of Light~
But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.1 Thessalonians 5:4-6
This morning as I read this passage, I was inspired. We as the children of God are looking forward to the "Day of the Lord". It will not over take us as the non-Christian. It will come unexpectedly for them. Christians should not be spiritual asleep, but watching. The sinner should be motivated to repent and accept God's forgiveness for their sins. Those not walking in the Spirit will not be ready for that great day
The believer should die daily to the things of the world and live for Christ. We are not in darkness so that this day should catch us unaware. Christians should place their faith in Christ and love one another. We have the hope of salvation. We have everything to look forward to as we are the "Children of Light" and are not caught un-aware.
