This video is the entire 9:00am service, the audio is only Pastor Tom’s message. Paul’s Final Advice 1st Thessalonians 5:14-18 As the body of Christ, we are to be very patient and loving to all others, even though this is extremely difficult to do. Three marks of a genuine church: Always rejoicing and thereby creating an atmosphere of joy throughout. Praying without ceasing. Give thanks in all circumstances
We do not have to look for meaning, purpose and happiness “out there “in the world someplace. We already have these within our own hearts.
We have earthly protectors that serve our country and other countries well in the armed services. We should certainly honor those who have given their lives to protect us and our freedom. However, we have heavenly protectors as well that have the earth to guard against evil and promote goodness, justice and love throughout the world in the form of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
There are many images in the Bible describing God in the feminine form. Isaiah 66:13 is only one of these. Also because of God’s great and tremendous love of us the word “comfort” is also used frequently in the Bible to describe God’s awesome caring for us.
As followers and disciples of Jesus we are to love each other as God and Jesus love us. We don’t really have a choice if we are to call ourselves “Christian”.
The disciples thought that their journey with Jesus was over, but of course it wasn’t. Neither is our journey with Jesus over. There is still much we need to do to help the world overcome evil and have peace prevail throughout.
