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: Within the community of Christ, we have a responsibility to love one another and care for one another; to build up one another. As Christians, we also have personal and daily responsibility as a believer, and these involve rejoicing, praying, and being thankful in Jesus Christ.
