Sermon Notes: Walking Worthy for The Day (1 Thes 5: 1-11)
The Day of the Lord will be sudden but not surprising - be sober as you wait for your salvation

The Day of the Lord will be sudden... (1-3)
- Like a thief in the night or labour pains - sudden, unexpected
- ‘They’ and ‘them’ - talking about other people

... but not surprising... (4-5)
- You, beloved, not kept in the dark - open secret, not surprised
- Children of light and the day - not of the night / darkness

... so be sober... (6-8)
- Don’t fall asleep - keep awake & sober - you’re in the day, not the night
- Put on the armour - breastplate of faith & love, helmet - hope of salvation

... as you wait for your salvation (9-11)
- The Day will bring salvation (not wrath) - Jesus has already done it!
- Encourage and build up because of our certain future
How does our life show that we belong to the day, with this certain hope?
