People's Bible Notes for 1 Thessalonians 5:5


1Th 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day. They are of the light, of the day, because they have come to Christ for light, and are taught of him. Hence on this subject they are fully informed. We are not of the night, nor of darkness. Those are "of the night", who turn away from the light and refuse to accept it.

    I think that forgiveness and salvation is there for the asking, HE welcomes us with open arms, we just have to ask and accept.

    I wish that this chapter was read to all the brenthen as asked in verse 27, but even more that the real saints of God would began to be doers and not just hearers alone. My biggest struggle has been with those who proclaim the name of Christ. Therefore making the pursue of Christ harder than it should be.
