The Lord IS Faithful (2 Thessalonians 3:3-5)10/12/14
We are in a battle, but God has promised to protect us from the evil one. His faithfulness does not depend on our faith and He is faithful forever. He is faithful to love us even when we are unlovable and His compassions never fail.
We All Need Prayer, the Word, and the War (2 Thessalonians 3:1-2)
At the top of Paul's prayer list were the Word of God, and the war against evil. Pray for others to preach the Gospel fearlessly--especially your pastor. We are at war with Satan for souls, but we have the prayer advantage.
It's an Inside Job (2 Thessalonians 2:16,17)
God has promised His Spirit--the one who draws us near--to encourage us. God wants us to trust the Spirit to do the necessary work within us. This requires that we allow the Spirit access to every part of our lives and our selves.
Stand Firm and Hold On... Anchored (2 Thessalonians 2:15)
Weathering life's storms requires a strong anchor and the Christian life requires active participation and hard work. Prayer is the first effort in standing firm. Let nothing move you. You are not to be discouraged, for the battle belongs to the Lord.
Thank You Lord for Saving My Soul (2 Thessalonians 2:13-14)
We were born sinners and were all once lost until God gave us the faith to believe. We are saved by faith through grace and that not of ourselves. Through the spirit, truth, and the gospel He gave us the ability to trust in Christ. Praise God!
1 Timothy 4:11-15
The world should marvel at us, recognizing that we have spent time with Jesus. Our speech should build others up and our lifestyle should be an example for them to follow to Jesus. Also our spirit, faith and purity should be a breath of fresh air.
Choices Matter (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)
You have a choice and your choice matters. In this country, we are accustomed to having many choices. For salvation, there is only one choice: Jesus. In spite of debates about Calvinism and Arminianism, we only need to worry about our responsibility.
The Second Coming of Jesus. When? (2 Thessalonians 2:5-10)
Just because we may be tired of waiting does not mean that Christ will not return at the appointed time. We need to be watching, waiting, and ready until then. We must lead holy and godly lives, looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth.
Pray for Souls... Those Right Around Us! (Acts 8:26-40)
God sent Phillip out for the purpose of speaking to one single person. We each have people right around us whom we can pray for and reach out to. Sometimes asking a simple question is all it takes to start a dialog about Jesus.
The Second Coming of Jesus... Did you miss it? (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4)
Today, some teach that the second coming of Christ has already happened, just as some taught during the first century of the Church. But the Bible teaches that there will be no doubt when He returns. Make sure you are ready!
Prayer by His Power (2 Thessalonians 1:11-12)
If we are not asking God in prayer to show us what He wants us to do, perhaps it is because we don't want to do it. Yet if we do nothing, how can God use us? We must abide in Him, Christ Jesus, who enables us to do good works.
Heaven or Hell? (2 Thessalonians 1:8-10)
Although modern technology helps us to keep in touch across the miles, there is nothing like being face-to-face. In heaven, we will be face-to-face with one another and with God. But hell is a place of separation from God and everlasting destruction.
Why Doesn't God Do Something? (2 Thessalonians 1:5-7)
God is just and He will administer His justice perfectly. All wrongs will eventually be set right and we too will be judged. Until that time comes believers should trust in God, knowing that what God's justice demands, His grace, love, and mercy...
Growing. Persevering. Never Give Up. (2 Thessalonians 1:3-4)
Faith and love lead to perseverance, a cheerful or hopeful endurance, a steady determination never to give up. Pray for that sort of faith and love and never give up. Your work will be rewarded.
Growing. Persevering. (2 Thessalonians 1:1-2)
Is your faith growing? Growth takes care and effort and is brought about by God. Meeting in small groups, studying the Word, and praying for the Holy Spirit to do a work within us are things we can do. Involvement is better for growing than knowledge.
Some of the qualities that make a good mom are leadership with heart, prayer and sacrifice, worship and trust, wisdom, teaching, and comforting. We are called to honor our mothers by revering, prizing and valuing them.
Some of the qualities that make a good dad are love, presence, protection, strength, provision, wisdom, guidance, and example. We need help to be good dads, and God will help us. The Bible provides many examples of how God is our perfect Father.
Fallen? Broken? Ruined? God can Restore, Repair, and Rebuild. (Amos 9)
The impossibility of escaping from God's impending judgment should make us tremble. Yet although He will sift us like wheat, He will also repair the broken places. He is the Master Craftsman who knows how to rebuild people.
The Plumb Line (Amos 7-8)
Masons use a plumb line to measure a vertical surface. We can think of such a line coming down from heaven. God gives us this analogy to remind us that He sets the standard by which we are measured. His plumb line is one of righteousness.
It's All About Me (Amos 5-6)
We may long for the Day of the Lord for our own benefit, but we should be mindful of those around us who are not saved because it is not all about us. That day will be great and dreadful and this should motivate us to share our faith and pray for...
