Invitation to be ready for the Lord's Day

1 Thess 5.1I do not need to write to you about time and hour, brothers.1 Thess 5.2You yourself know very well that the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night.1 Thess 5.3While people are saying: Peace and security! Suddenly ruin comes upon them like labor pains a pregnant woman, and there is no escape.1 Thess 5.4But you, brothers, do not live in the dark, so that the day cannot surprise you like a thief.1 Thess 5.5You are all sons of light and sons of day. We do not belong to the night and we do not belong to the darkness.1 Thess 5,6That's why we don't want to sleep like the others, but rather be awake and sober.1 Thess 5.7Because whoever sleeps sleeps at night, and whoever gets drunk gets drunk at night.1 Thess 5.8But we who belong to the day want to be sober and arm ourselves with the armor of faith and love and with the helmet of hope for salvation.1 Thess 5.9For God did not appoint us to the judgment of his wrath, but to attain salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord.1 Thess 5.10He died for us so that we might live united with him whether we wake up or sleep.1 Thess 5.11Therefore comfort and admonish one another and one lift up the other, as you are already doing..
