1 Thessalonians 2:7-20
1 Thessalonians 2:7-20
Please open your Bible and follow along

Real ministry is sacrificial
At one point Paul wrote that he "rejoice[d] in [his] sufferings...and fill[ed] up in [his] flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church" (Col 1:24)
God is love (1 Jn 4:8)
And there is no greater example of that love than "to lay down one's life for his friends." (Jn 15:13)

Ministry must necessarily be both tender, "like a nursing mother" (vs 7) and tough, "charg[ing] every one of you, as a father" (vs 11)
Never forget Jesus wept (Jn 11:35) and whipped (Jn 2:15-16)
He received children (Mt 19:15) and rebuked Pharisees (Mt 23:13)

They knew it was written by their Creator and welcomed it into their lives
Without question, this is the single greatest factor in determining whether a person's life will be transformed
Don't believe me? Read the promises of Psalm 1 and Matthew 7:24-29

When you respond to the truth of God's Word, you will become a target of anger
This is normal and shouldn't stop us

Instead, we are told to trust that the Lord is fully aware...

"Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you." (Mt 5:12)
"God [will] repay with tribulation those who trouble you" (2 Thess 1:6)

What should we do when convinced the Devil is throwing up roadblocks?
Drive over them!
Trusting God to guide you


There are only two things in this present world which will remain forever

God's Word (Mt 24:35)
And people (Dan 12:2-3)

We must always ask, "What difference will my life have made 10 thousand years from now?"

Applause from the world will fade
Power, Money and Prestige will all vanish

But the lives we have impacted will be there FOREVER!

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us."

2 Corinthians 4:5-7

This Fellowship is a body of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. Our desire is to worship Him and know Him more fully.

We are a non-denominational fellowship that rests firmly in God's grace. We believe that His unconditional love led Him to the cross where He died for the sins of the world and rose from the dead three days later, overcoming death and sin for those who believe in Him.

We believe that the evidence of a maturing church is faith, hope, and love. Therefore, we emphasize the teaching of the Scriptures as God's inspired, infallible, inerrant Word that our faith might grow. We know faith comes by hearing and learning the Word of God. We also live in the anticipation of the imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The fruit of the Spirit is love and it is by our love for one another that the world will know that we are followers of Jesus Christ.

We gather to lift the name of Jesus in worship and praise. He is our hope! May the Lord bless you as we worship and learn from Him together.
