Are you thanking God for your family? Many would say yes, while many others, having suffered abuse from their families, might say no. Whatever your family situation, you were created for family…. God’s family. Listen to what the Bible says about God’s will for your life.
Are you looking forward to the bodily return of Jesus Christ? Whether it be your death, the Rapture, or the 2nd Coming, Jesus is coming again. Paul writes to this newly formed church, who so looked forward to Jesus’ 2nd Coming that they grieved over those who had already died, in fear that they would miss out on Jesus’ victorious return. Listen to how Paul comforts those believers with the revelation of what is coming when Jesus returns.
Do you believe that God is actually using EVERYTHING for the good of those who love Him and are called by Him? Do you believe that God is setting up divine appointments between those who follow Him and those who either do not understand Him or do not know Him at all? Listen to what the Bible says to both of these questions.
What does it mean to be holy? We know that it means to be set apart, but is that a call away from humanity and its sin? Isn’t it enough to love and to have faith? Paul writes this letter to commend these new Christians in this newly formed church. But in his commendation, he urges holiness. Listen to what the Bible says about being holy.
The miracle of salvation is available, but unfortunately, rare. Wide is the road that leads to destruction, but narrow is the way that leads to eternal life. Gratitude is the healthy sign of salvation. Jesus encounters 10 people, but only one really came to express thanksgiving and worship. Listen to what the Bible says about gratitude and salvation.
Are you doing OK? Paul was following up with new believers in a newly established church to discover the answer to that question. When bad or unexpected things happen in our lives, our faith can be shaken. This year of 2020 has sent many things our way to test our faith. So how are you doing? Listen to what the Bible says about a rock solid faith, no matter the storms.
Are you grateful for the good news of Jesus Christ and the salvation He brings? Jesus prayed to God, His Father, and thanked Him that the Gospel was given to those who are humble and dependent enough to receive it. It will never be understood in faith by the worldly, the proud, nor the academic lost in self-sufficiency. Listen to what the Bible says about this saving good news.
Have you ever been skeptical of particular ministries you have encountered? Paul was having to deal with skepticism of his own ministry. His best defense was his motivation for ministry to the people of Thessalonica., and wherever he went telling the good news of Jesus Christ. Listen to find out the right and wrong motivations for ministry.
Some would say that grace has nullified the law. But has it? What is the purpose of the law since the grace of God is greater than our breaking of the law? If we are not saved by our keeping the law, why does Jesus say, “If we love Him, we will keep His commands.” Listen to what the Bible says about grace and the law of God.
It is hard to believe that in the face of expressed love and undeserved grace, that we would ever reject it or take it for granted. But the reality is that we are all guilty of stepping on the grace extended out way. Praise the Lord, God’s grace is greater than our rejection. God’s grace can bring you back from rejection to acceptance. Where are you with God’s grace? Listen to what the Bible says about God’s amazing grace.
Perhaps what is needed both in our lives and our culture is grace, the unmerited favor and kindness which is not deserved. Justice and revenge come naturally and easily to desire. Grace almost seems unfair, except when it comes to us personally. For reasons God only knows, we have become the targets of God’s grace. Do you really know that God loves you? When that reality sinks in, you will receive that grace, and begin to live a grace-filled life. You will be known by the grace you give to others. Listen to what the Bible says about grace.
