Concerning times and seasons, brothers and sisters, you have no need for anything to be written to you. For you yourselves know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief at night. When people are saying, “Peace and security, ” then sudden disaster comes upon them, like labor pains upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness, for that day to overtake you like a thief. For all of you are children of the light and children of the day. We are not of the night or of darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep as the rest do, but let us stay alert and sober.
Again we are being asked to be alert, because we do not know the day of the Lord. We are given the task of helping those who are in darkness. If you are in the light, you have been tasked by Our Lord to help others to see the light that is Him. Are you ready? Are you awake?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I ask for your help to always be alert to the signs of the time and to help my brothers and sisters to come home to you. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Blessed are those who fear the Lord.
