1 Thessalonians 5:1-11
“So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:6
Perfect understanding of today’s text, makes us know that though the day of the Lord is coming as a thief in the night, it shall not be so for the children of Light. If you are born again, you are a child of Light. It is not expected that, that day shall overtake you as a thief. All sincere children of God will know that something glorious is about to happen because they will not be sleeping (spiritually) but will be sober and watching in prayers.
There are so many things that will want to take us away from the things of the Lord, but we should insist on always being Heavenly focused. It has been said by the Lord, that in the end time, iniquity shall abound and the love of many shall wax cold. Determine to keep your light burning and refuse to compromise. Keep fanning your love for God by prayer, studying the Word of God and right association. Whosoever endures to the end, the same shall be saved (Mark 13:13).
Pray that you will be vigilant and watch always in prayers.
