Sermons on 1 Thessalonians (Page 2)
We have many reasons to thank God for the church. However, no church can survive apart from the supernatural working of the Holy Spirit in her midst. The existence and health of the church rests upon the experience of the Holy Spirit converting men and women from darkness to light.
God gives church members a sacred responsibility to stir up love in the church through honoring those who lead them. In this message, Pastor Ritch teaches from I Thessalonians 5:12-13, about the call to strengthen the local church by supporting and honoring those called to shepherd it.
Every church is still in process of becoming what it one day will be. Our Lord Jesus created her, gifts her, leads her, builds her, blesses her and will ultimately perfect her. And He has given spiritual leaders a sacred responsibility to stir up love in the church through shepherding God’s people.
Every new day brings with it new temptations, challenges, and opportunities to either gratify the flesh or to honor God with our choices. In this message from I Thessalonians 4:1-8, Pastor Josh Beakley teaches about the church’s tendency to forget about the spiritual battle Christians fight each day and offers practical encouragement to help us grow deeper in our walk with Christ.
