United to Shine God's Design for His Church Part 9: Standing against personal retaliation and hunting down the good in others.

In a sinful world where retaliation and returning evil for evil is as common as drinking water and as expected as a sunny day in Southern California, Paul commands the Thessalonian believers to exemplify the precious jewel of the heart of Christ: watching out that no one in the congregation return evil for evil but instead pursuing what is eternally beneficial for one another in the church and any body else outside the church.

United to Shine God's Design for His Church Part 8: Lovingly bind yourself next to the weak

Paul continues his explanation of how it is necessary to walk and please God in the believers relationship with one another by giving the commands to help the weak and be patient with all men. These continue to fill out the picture of how the church ought to reflect Christ and not be a Darwinistic or country club like church.

Amen

United to Shine God's Design for His Church Part 7

Paul's command to the Thessalonian church to console the fainthearted is a sweet reminder of God's care for us. As we trust and obey God's command, we will shine brightly the glory of Christ who is the sweet consolation of His people and sinners who trust in Him.

United to Shine God's Design for His Church Part 6

This week, we continued our thinking through God's command of admonish the unruly by answering the questions of - what if someone admonishes you and they are wrong? and - what if you need to admonish someone?

United to Shine God's Design for His Church Part 5

We covered the command to admonish the unruly. We asked and covered 4 out of the 7 questions to help us understand and meditate more on what God has commanded for His church. Admonishment of the unruly should come from and live in the atmosphere of loving Christ and esteeming being like Him beyond all measure.

Amen
