Ephesians‬ ‭5:8-14‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“For you were once darkness,
but now you are light in the Lord.
Live as children of light
(for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)
and find out what pleases the Lord.
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds
of darkness, but rather expose them.
It is shameful even to mention
what the disobedient do in secret.
But everything exposed by the light
becomes visible—and everything
that is illuminated becomes a light.
This is why it is said:
“Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.””
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:8-14‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“But you, brothers and sisters,
are not in darkness
so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light
and children of the day.
We do not belong to the night
or to the darkness.
So then, let us not be like others,
who are asleep,
but let us be awake and sober.
For those who sleep, sleep at night,
and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day,
let us be sober, putting on faith
and love as a breastplate,
and the hope of salvation as a helmet.
For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath
but to receive salvation
through our Lord Jesus Christ.
He died for us so that,
whether we are awake or asleep,
we may live together with him.
Therefore encourage one another
and build each other up,
just as in fact you are doing.”
‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:4-11‬ ‭NIV‬‬
