Colossians 1:13
13 He rescued us from the authority of the darkness+ and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 by means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins.+
15 He is the image of the invisible God,+ the firstborn of all creation;+
16 because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible,+ whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him+ and for him.
17 Also, he is before all other things,+ and by means of him all other things were made to exist, 18 and he is the head of the body, the congregation.+ He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead,+ so that he might become the one who is first in all things;

1 Thessalonians 5:1
Now as for the times and the seasons, brothers, you need nothing to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know very well that Jehovah’s* day+ is coming exactly as a thief in the night.+ 3 Whenever it is that they are saying,“Peace and security!” then sudden destruction is to be instantly on them,+ just like birth pains on a pregnant woman, and they will by no means escape. 4 But you, brothers, you are not in darkness, so that the day should overtake you as it would thieves, 5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day.+ We belong neither to night nor to darkness.+
6 So, then, let us not sleep on as the rest do,+ but let us stay awake+ and keep our senses.+ 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.

1 Thessalonians 5:14 http://www.jw.org/en/
.+ 14 On the other hand, we urge you, brothers, to warn* the disorderly,+ speak consolingly to those who are depressed,* support the weak, be patient toward all.+ 15 See that no one repays injury for injury to anyone,+ but always pursue what is good toward one another and to all others.+
16 Always be rejoicing.+ 17 Pray constantly.+ 18 Give thanks for everything.+ This is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 19 Do not put out the fire of the spirit.+ 20 Do not treat prophecies with contempt.+ 21 Make sure of all things;+ hold fast to what is fine. 22 Abstain from every form of wickedness.+
