We are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others. 1 Thessalonians 5:5,6​


THE Christian, as a disciple of the Lord, as a pupil in the school of Christ, is being fitted for a place in the Millennial Kingdom—for a share in its glory, honor and immortality. Hence, we see the necessity for the frequent admonitions of the Scriptures, that the Lord’s people shall be awake;—not of those who slumber; not of those who are idle; not of those who are overcharged with the cares of this life; but that they be fervent in spirit, serving the Lord. Their service toward the Lord is primarily the bringing of themselves into as close harmony with the Lord’s will, and into as close likeness to the divine pattern as possible; and secondly, it is that by precept and example they may help others of the called ones in the same narrow way.
