July 3, 2022 | Defining Focus
Join us for the “Defining Moments” series! This series is centered around the idea that each person has a limited number of moments in life that shape your future. You may have a million experiences, but defining moments are few, brief, and may have lasting influence over all that you do from that day forward!

1 Thessalonians 5:11-22
Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing. But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction, and that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Live in peace with one another. We urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone. See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit; do not despise prophetic utterances. But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil.
Pursue what is before you, and you will influence what is beyond you.
Ephesians 3:20-21
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
ENCOURAGE the people around you.

“Therefore encourage one another…” v. 11
7 Ways to Encourage People:

2 - Live in peace. v. 13b
3 - Admonish the disorderly. v. 14a
4 - Reach out to the fearful. v. 14b
5 - Help the weak. v. 14c
6 - Be patient with all. v. 14d
7 - Pursue good for all. v. 15
Hebrews 10:23-25
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
Stay strong. Stay active. Stay together.
DEPEND on the One above you.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-20
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit; do not despise prophetic utterances.
For me to give rejoice, pray, and give thanks in everything, I must believe that God will work every circumstance in my life for good.
DISCERN the issues before you.

1 Thessalonians 5:21-22
But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil.
Filter everything through Scriptural truth.
Embrace and protect what is good.
Move away from all forms of evil.
1 John 3:17-18
But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
