6So then let us not fall asleep as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober; 7for those who sleep sleep at night, and those who are drunk get drunk at night. 8But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, and put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. 9For God has destined us not for wrath but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep we may live with him. 11Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing. (1 Thessalonians 5:6-11, NRSV)
We need to have our sense about us, and not be in a state where we do not know or understand what is happening around us. We need to make sure that we are aware of our surroundings and be prepared to share the love that has been given to us at any moment.
God is asking us to encourage each other and keep each other moving forward because God has gifted us with love and that love is to be shared.
So be awake and aware and share God’s love with all of the world.
