1 Thessalonians 1:1-4
Unto the Church in Elk Rapia (Part 2)
1) Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2) We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;
3) Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
4) Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.
If I called you and told you i was in Elk Rapia what would you be thinking in your mind? If I told you I was in church what would run through your thoughts? If I told you I was in the hospital what image would that produce? What about being in the military? As we begin the study in Thessalonians what will be in our minds?
B) Our response towards one another vs. 2
It is not what we are in but who we are in!
