Day and night. Darkness and light. It may sound like Paul is giving an astronomy lesson to the folks in Thessalonica but he’s actually using those opposites as a metaphor. I’ve heard this verse before in songs and sermons and usually it’s understood to be a description of who we (Jesus followers) are. We are children of the light. We’re awake, ready and see the truth of who God is. We’re not asleep, unprepared and in the dark about God’s true nature. I think all that is good and true, but I want to take this in a little different direction.
