What It's All About


"Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus" (1 Thess.5:16-18).

There's a lot packed into those three verses. Christians can be sure of this: GOD WILL BE FAITHFUL! No matter what the circumstance, God is there for us. Paul tells the members of the church at Thessalonica that God's will for us is to "be joyful always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances." Warmth among believers ought to prevail as we greet one another with a kiss of love. A life in Christ is a life in His church. The church is God's holy community that Jesus purchased with His life. This makes being a Christian more than just going through the motions of attending services, offering the occasional prayer, and feeling good about one's self. It is even more than getting to feel religious when problems arise. A Christian never outgrows the need for encouragement, stimulation and perhaps even correction. "Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds" (Heb.10:24). There simply is no real substitute for the richness found in the company of other Christians...It brings everything into the light and keeps our moral GPS functioning the way it was meant to. As we gather together, we are under the ever watchful eye of God. Guided by His Spirit inspired Word, we are to gather and worship as His people. We support each other unflinchingly, as encouragement and love flows among us...And that's what it's all about....

Have a great day....Lift one another... Love mark Phil.4:11
