Weekly sermons from Grace Fellowship Church of West Toronto
Live a Life of Good Works
The Lord Jesus Christ saved his people to be zealous for good works. That does not mean only the good works that are easy to do, but the difficult ones as well, such as lovingly rebuking a brother or sister in sin. The Christian life is filled with many hardships, but the Lord gives us his peace, presence, and grace.
Blessed Are Those Who Are Persecuted for Righteousness' Sake
esus rounds out His remarkable Beatitudes with a surprise twist at the end. This upside-down Kingdom living will not result in everything being lovely and wonderful through life. It may result in the exact opposite. But the path He calls us to is the path He trod. And in our submission to His ways, we will learn what true happiness is all about.
Do Not Live a Disorderly Life
Idleness may not sound like a big deal, but it is a sin that Paul takes very seriously. In response to the present idleness in the life of the church, Paul employs some drastic measures in order to purge the church of this sin.
Live By Praying to Your Faithful God
God’s work to advance the gospel and build his kingdom must be done with God’s power. That is why Paul asks the Thessalonians to pray for his missionary work. The Lord is faithful and we can look to him to do what he promised to do.
Live by Holding Fast to Truth
Living in this world can feel a lot like being on a boat in the middle of a storm. When the strong winds and high waves of life hit you hard, what you need to do is hold on to something secure. In this passage, the apostle Paul calls on the Thessalonians to hold on to the truth of God’s Word. It is the only thing secure enough to keep Christians safe in the of storms of life.
