We all have people in our lives who really should be living their lives in a certain way, but they don't. They are supposed to be productive with their time, resources, and relationships, but we see them doing the opposite. How do you deal with people who know that they are supposed to do something but they don't?
Life is rather unpredictable can be overwhelming at times. It takes unexpected turns and twists. Just when you think you’ve got everything figured out that that all your plans are coming together the unexpected happens. How do we as Christ-followers stand firm in such moments? What do we do in such moments? Join us as we consider how Paul answers this question in his letter to the Thessalonians.
As Christ followers, our call is to spread the love and gospel of Christ. We do that with our words and the way that we live. However, how we use our words and how we live can have a negative impact on our task. Listen in as we consider Paul's message to the church of Thessalonica about how they should live out their witness.
How do we live when we know something is about to happen? We do our best to be prepared for emergencies. We tidy up our houses when we have guests coming over. We prepare by studying when we have a test coming up. When we know what's coming, we adjust the way we live to prepare for that moment. Paul reminds us that Jesus is coming soon. So how do you and I live in anticipation for this moment? Join us as we find answers to this question in our series in Paul's letters to the Thessalonian church.
We continue in our series in the letters of 1&2 Thessalonians.
In our life, no matter our circumstances, there will come a time as believers that our allegiance to Christ will conflict with the values around us. How do we respond when this happens? What promises can we hold onto when we come upon this crossroad? As we continue our sermon series and study on the book of Thessalonians, we learn from Paul that even in times of persecution for our faith, God has promises for us to remember when we stay true to Jesus.
