1 Thess 5:6-11

So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

One response to “1 Thess 5:6-11

  1. God did not destine us for wrath and destruction. He knew our rebellion and sent His Son Jesus to restore us. He calls us and offers us salvation in Christ. Jesus is our hope of salvation and our hope to be shared with others who are lost in their sin. We are meant to live in this time, be light in darkness, and not to be consumed by the night, or by the darkness of self-serving.
