Walk Worthy of God (1 Thessalonians 2:1-12)

We have been studying the book of 1 Thessalonians considering Paul’s message to these Christians on how to live in the light of eternity. We have seen in these Christians an amazing faith through great afflictions and difficulties. They were able to have this work of faith, labor of love, and steadfastness of hope (1:3) because they were waiting for Christ to return from heaven (1:10). Placing our eyes on eternity changes how we live our lives and gives us the courage and strength to endure great difficulties for the cause of Christ.

When God Came Down (Exodus 19:1-8)

We have been looking at our redemption that we have in Christ through the life of Israel as God redeemed the people of Israel from Egyptian slavery. Exodus 19 opens with telling us that it is now two months since the people have come out of Egypt. They are about to experience a moment that will change everything in the life of these people. Notice in verses 2-3 that Israel is in the Sinai Desert and they have camp in front of the mountain. Moses has gone up on this mountain. In fact, notice how this is worded because it is amazing: “Moses went up to God.” God has come down and Moses is able to go up the mountain to God. This is a monumental moment for the people of Israel.

Together: Submit To One Another

This morning we are continuing our monthly series called Together where we are looking at the passages that describe how we are to act toward one another as followers of Jesus. Our goal for this series is that we would draw closer together and be more of what God has called us to be as the family in Christ by considering and learning from these passages in God’s word. The scripture we are going to look at this morning is found in Ephesians 5:18-21.

18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, 20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. (Ephesians 5:18–21 ESV)
