Growing Through Hope

Comments Off on Growing Through Hope

If “faith is the substance of things hoped for …” then 1 Thessalonians should be a key part of any believer’s growth. This letter contains:

  • Inspiring hope for the young convert (chapter 1)
  • Encouraging hope for a faithful servant (chapter 2)
  • Purifying hope for the a believer (chapter 3)
  • Comforting hope for the bereaved (chapter 4)
  • Rousing hope for the slack or sleepy (chapter 5)

As you prepare for your next worship, center it around the hope of Christ’s coming.

If Christ were coming today, what do you have left to do? A great list of action that reinforces hope is in 1 Thessalonians 5:12-22.
