I love to just read through an entire book of the Bible. There are always so many things God opens up my eyes for. Here is a few encouragements that stood out to me from reading 1Thessalonians this week.
You are LOVED by God!
Become a MODEL to all believers!
Let`s not try to please men, but please God who tests our hearts!
Live lives WORTHY to God.
The WORD OF GOD IS AT WORK IN YOU WHO BELIEVE.
Become imitators of God.
It is God`s will that you should be sanctified.
God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.
We will be WITH THE LORD FOREVER.Encourage each other with these words.
You are sons of the light and sons of the day.
We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled.
ENCOURAGE one another and BUILD EACH OTHER UP, just as in fact you are doing.
Warn those who are idle.
Encourage the timid.
Help the weak.
Be patient with everyone.
Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each othee and to everyone else.
Be joyful always.
P r a y c o n t i n u a l l y.
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God`s will for you in Jesus Christ.
TEST EVERYTHING. HOLD ON TO THE GOOD.
The one who calls you is faithful and He will do it.
And what a promise to close with! God pledges Himself to do this work in me. Wow!!!!!! :)
