“For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. (1 Thessalonians 5:7-10)
Christians follow Christ, “the light of the world” (John 8:12). This not only gives us great comfort, it also places upon us the great responsibility of faithfully following Him. Faith, love and hope are not defined by the night and its drunken activities. We have been appointed to “obtain salvation”, not “wrath”. We do not practice the sinful things of darkness. We are “of the day”, walking soberly in the light of truth. If you have strayed from the path of truth, then return to Jesus now. Faithful Christians are appointed to live forever with Christ, but all who walk in darkness are appointed to wrath.
