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.
