Not Taken by Surprise

Not Taken by Surprise

Are you ready for the second coming of Christ? Do you know how to prepare yourself so you are not taken by surprised? In this passage, Paul teaches the church in Thessalonica how to live a life that is ready for his second coming.

But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.”

1 Thessalonians 5:4-8 NIV
