The Psalmist David proclaims “The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way; though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the Lord upholds his hand.” The reality of being a follower of Christ is we will fall, but we will not fall away. Why? Not our hold on Him but His hold on us. Don’t let discourage settled into our hearts over our failings, but let encouragement come that in our failings He never lets go of us (Psalm 37:23-24).
This Lord’s Day, we look at the Thessalonians and see the evidence of lives changed by the Gospel. What we will encounter serves us well to evaluate our lives to see how the Gospel has changed and is changing our lives.
This Lord’s Day, we look at what made the Thessalonians and all believers people of faith, love, and hope that is produces Christ-centered influence in the world – the power of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus to change lives.
