Awake

8 Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has
fulfilled the law. 9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not
murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet”; and any other commandment, are
summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to a
neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law. 11 Besides this, you know what time
it is, how it is now the moment for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us
now than when we became believers; 12 the night is far gone, the day is near. Let us then
lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light; 13 let us live honorably as
in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in
quarreling and jealousy. 14 Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision
for the flesh, to gratify its desires. (Rm. 13:8-14 NRSV)
