Thoughts on 1 Thessalonians 5 (part 1)

Jesus will come, whether unexpectedly or expectedly depends on how you are living your life. So live your life expectantly knowing that He will come anytime. Stay alert and “clear-headed” as Paul says. This is the opposite of being asleep (I think this means lazy, apathetic, disregarding the warning or in denial), and being drunk (impulsive, short-sighted, terrible decision-making). And remember, to be on the alert 24/7 is impossible – unless with the power of the Holy Spirit.

For God chose to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out his anger on us. Christ died for us so that, whether we are dead or alive when he returns, we can live with him forever. So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. (‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5‬:‭9-11‬ ESV)
