Welcome to South and this Live YouVersion Event. Pastor Scott is in a series entitled "One Another" - we hope that you will enjoy the notes and Scriptures below, to supplement his message!
Series Intro

Because sin has negatively affected our individual hearts, it can negatively affect our relationships with one another, since our hearts can become filled with all kinds of sinful things like anger, resentment, bitterness, hatred, jealousy, prejudice, lust, etc. We desperately need truth spoken into our sinful hearts, which is what God has done by giving us these 'one another' commands.
Context

Paul is teaching them from a practical standpoint. Be ready for the thief in the night! Be prepared, because you don't know when Christ will return. Also we learn about "children of the day" and "children of the night".
Command

We are told to encourage one another and build each other up.
Responsibilities in your Mind

1) Not Sleeping. To 'sleep' refers to becoming spiritually disengaged, indifferent or apathetic.

2) Keep Awake. This refers to being spiritually watchful so that you are able to see and prepare yourself for any spiritual dangers, temptations, and pitfalls.

3) Be Sober. This is just a good rule of thumb for life, but in this case, Paul is specifically warning us to make sure that we protect ourselves from anything that would dull our spiritual sensitivity and alertness.
Responsibility toward Others

1) Encouragement
2) Building up
Text Giving

If you would like to set up text giving from your phone, just text any amount to '84321', and you will receive a link that walks you through the setup process. It takes a few minutes to set it up, but then after the initial setup, it will take just a few seconds to give your offering this way. Highly recommend it!
