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 foundation for living a holy life is of course our relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ. The core that enables us; what fuels us to live a holy life, is the Holy Spirit. God calls and enables us to live a holy life, and we need to yield to the Spirit's leading and commit ourselves to obeying God's word in living it out.
