The Thessalonians are commended for their faith, especially in the midst of opposition and tribulation. Paul is genuinely concerned about their spiritual growth and maturing, wanting them to “excel still more” in their faith and in their love for one another. Paul exhorts the Thessalonian believers to remain faithful, and continue to work diligently. These are the very things that we also should take to heart in the midst of the world we live in today.
Sermon Description: The message has to do with the current state of the church, as well as what the church currently lacks. A clear vision is necessary for the church, which will give it direction in how it does ministry, and thus guide it in the decisions that are made as a church, including where it does ministry.
