September 1, 2015 (1 Thess 5:1-6, 9-11)

1 Thess is the oldest book of the N. T. Paul is comforting his community that those who have died have not missed out on the “Second Coming.” He tells them that Jesus will come, “like a thief in the night,” and goes on to tell them, that they are “not in darkness.” There is nothing to fear. We live 2000 years later and are still awaiting Jesus’ return “like the thief in the night.” But, we, too, are not in darkness but in “light.” Let us live our lives as if Jesus were to return now and do our best to prepare ourselves and others for His return.
