Remember without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.
You are all the sons of light and the sons of the day.
We are not of the night, or of darkness.
Therefore let us not sleep as the rest do, but let us watch and be calm.
For those sleeping sleep in the night, and those being drunken are drunken in the night.
But let us, who are of the day, be calm, having put on the breastplate of faith and love and the hope of salvation for a helmet.
For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, so that whether we watch or sleep we should live together with Him.
1Th 1:3-4, 5:5-10
