Living in the Last Days (1 Thessalonians)

Like a Thief in the Night

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 – April 4, 2017

Christian, do you know what time it is?
The clock is ticking for all of us!

Will We See Our Loved Ones Again?

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 – January 18, 2017

We believe in the resurrection of the saints because we believe in the resurrection of Jesus

Everyday Christianity

1 Thessalonian 4:9-12 – November 16, 2016

When we show that our faith makes us better workers, truer friends, better neighbors, kinder men and women, then we are really preaching. The best sermon is the one you preach by your good example.

Abstain!

1 Thessalonians 4:1-8 – October 4, 2016

When we walk in purity, the world notices because people are looking for hope.

How to Pray When Life Blows Up

1 Thessalonians 3:10-13 – September 12, 2016

Pray, pray, and keep on praying. Do for others what others have done for you.

Living in Hard Times

1 Thessalonians 3:1-8 – September 6, 2016

When your trials are over, you will come forth as gold.

Unquestioned Integrity

1 Thessalonians 2:1-6 – July 18, 2016

Don’t build your ministry and then add God. Build on the rock called God, and let your ministry rest on that divine foundation.

What Does It Mean to Believe the Bible? Part 2

1 Thessalonians 2:13-16 – October 22, 2012

Where do religious liberals come from? Several years ago Gregory Wills discussed this question in an article called What Lessons Can We Learn from the History of Liberalism? We make a mistake when we assume that liberalism starts outside the church, as if it were a kind of alien invasion. Liberalism arises as a kind […]

What Does It Mean to Believe the Bible? Part 1

1 Thessalonians 2:13-16 – October 5, 2012

Will we believe the Bible, all of it, every word of it, from first to last, and everything in between?

The Standing Orders of the Gospel

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 – January 11, 2009

The real impact of the gospel will be seen when we don’t feel joyful, when we don’t want to pray, and when we can’t think of a reason to be thankful. That’s when we discover if our Christianity is the genuine article or a spiritual counterfeit.

What is a Christian?

1 Thessalonians 1:4-10 – May 20, 2007

A friend sent me an email telling about a question posed to her by a co-worker. Here is the exact text of the question: How is a Christian defined? It used to be that if you were not Jewish or Hindu or Buddhist, you were a Christian, whether Catholic or Lutheran or Episcopal or Baptist. […]

God Finishes What He Starts

1 Thessalonians 5:23-28 – December 8, 1996

“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.” A few days ago a friend asked me if I would share some […]

Christian Aerobics

1 Thessalonians 5:12-22 – December 1, 1996

“The mark of true Christian faith is that it changes everything you do and say.” Ray Stedman We have come to the last few verses of 1 Thessalonians. As we begin our study, I would like to remark for a moment upon the words quoted above from Ray Stedman. In his sermon on this text […]

Heavenly Rewards

1 Thessalonians 2:17-20 – September 15, 1996

As Christians, we have been given the best news in all the world. It’s too important not to share with others. May God help us to invest our lives in the things that will last forever.

What Does It Mean to Believe the Bible?

1 Thessalonians 2:13-16 – September 8, 1996

The debate over the nature of the Bible is so crucial. If it is only the word of man, then it is changeable, fickle and unreliable. But if the Bible is the word of God, then it is utterly and completely authoritative. If God has spoken in the Bible, then what he says has final claim on my life.

Ministry That Makes a Difference

1 Thessalonians 2:7-12 – September 1, 1996

We are called to be a kingdom of people living in a foreign land, representing the King himself in a world that thought it best to crucify him. In his long absence we are called to stand in his place, taking care of his interests, spreading his Word, and inviting others to join his cause. This is a high and noble calling: Let us live so that no one will be surprised to discover who it is we represent.

Turn, Turn, Turn

1 Thessalonians 1 – August 11, 1996

Conversion begins when you turn to God. It is nothing more or less than “an intentional turning of oneself to God.” Because it is intentional it does not happen by accident. Nor does it happen automatically. Nor can anyone else turn for you. You yourself must decide to turn to God. No one can make that decision for you.

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
