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: Our concern and love for one another should lead us to comfort each other with the promises of God found in Scripture. The hope of eternal life together with Christ, including the hope of resurrection, is something we can and should comfort one another with. A glorious future and eternity awaits us! Let us be more and more steadfast in our hope in Jesus Christ.
