This sermon begins our End Time Encouragement Series based on 1st & 2nd Thessalonians. We will go verse by verse through these two letters written by the Apostle Paul to encourage the faith of these believers. He begins in chapter one by encouraging them of the model they have been, giving us an example of what the church should be like today. God's standards are the highest! He is perfect and expects us to seek His perfection, by grace, in our lives as individuals and as a collected body! Be encouraged, there is hope in Jesus and we must live as those looking forward to His return!
