Throughout this section, Paul contrasts those who are in darkness (unbelievers) and those who are in the light (believers). At the Day of the Lord, the first group will be totally surprised and sudden destruction will come upon them (v. 4), for they will be "asleep" and "drunk" (v. 7). But believers actually look forward to the Day of the Lord, because Christ died that we might live with him (vv. 9-10). That day does not mean wrath but salvation for those who believe. Believers are not ignorant or unprepared for that final Day, because we are fully aware (v. 2) that it is coming like a thief and we are children of light, not darkness. This means believers' lives are characterized by alertness and sober-mindedness (vv. 6, 8). We should respond to Paul's teaching on the Day of the Lord by encouraging and building up one another so that we will all continue to be ready.
