Stay Strong, Live Ready: Finishing Well
The Holy Spirit plays an incredible part that is often downplayed as we take on a "self-help philosophy." This week, we'll look at 1 Thessalonians 5:23-28 as we seek to understand our part & God's part in making us live holy lives.

February 11, 2024 – Bonita Ritchie – 1 Thessalonians 5:23-28
We are being sanctified by the God of Peace

“Now may the God of peace make you holy (Sanctified) in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.” I Thessalonians 5:23
We are to be ready (at all times) for the Second coming of Christ

“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.” I Thessalonians 5:23b-24
We are to pray for each other - Greet fellow Christians in love - Share God’s Holy Word with everyone

“Dear brothers and sisters, pray for us. Greet all the brothers and sisters with a sacred kiss. I command you in the name of the Lord to read this letter to all the brothers and sisters." I Thessalonians 5:25-27
“A man can no more take in a supply of grace for the future than he can eat enough to-day to last him for the next six months, or take sufficient air into his lungs at once to sustain life for a week to come. We must draw upon God’s boundless stores of grace from day to day, as we need it.” Dwight L. Moody
Questions: Let me ask the 3 questions Dan did in his sermon at the beginning of I Thessalonians

1. Do you have a working faith in Jesus? Has your life changed?

2. Do you have an active Love for God and toward others?

3. Are your eyes steadfast beyond this present suffering to your Eternal Hope?

4. Let me invite you to Read I Thessalonians if you have not read it yet to help you form your answers to these questions. And may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you as you read it.
