We praise You, O Lord that by your mercy, we are not of the night nor of darkness and that by your grace, we are not destined for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him. Therefore, may we encourage one another and build up one another, just as we also are doing. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
1 Thessalonians 5:5-11 (NASB)
