Watch! Don't Sleep!
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11
|1 Thessalonians 5 (NKJV™)|
|1||But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you.|
|2||For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.|
|3||For when they say, "Peace and safety!" then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.|
|4||But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.|
|5||You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.|
|6||Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.|
|7||For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.|
|8||But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.|
|9||For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,|
|10||who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.|
|11||Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.|
