1 Thessalonians 5:7-9 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
7 Because we belong to the day, we must not get drunk. But we must be ready like people dressed for war. We must keep believing in God. We must be loving towards each other. Faith and love will be like strong clothes to cover our bodies. The hope of being saved will protect us like a hat or helmet covers our head.
8 God did not choose us so that he might be angry with us. But he chose us so that we might be saved through our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 He died for us so that, if we are alive or dead, we will live with him.
