<111> Thesis: The believer's "status" is an emphatic motivation for the believer's "behavior". Introduction: In our last study we saw that Paul declared that "the Day of the Lord" will not overtake believers for one reason: they are "sons" of both "light" and "day". He did not say that believers will not be overtaken because they, somehow, will know when that "Day" is to come. That knowledge has been deliberately reserved in heaven and the events of that "Day" are reserved for those "of the night" and "of darkness". In our study this evening we will consider the implications of this clear declaration. Since "the Day of the Lord will not overtake" believers, those who "believe" that are possessed of some pretty strong motivations to make certain choices and take certain actions.
