1 Thessalonians: Jesus is the Coming King Who Will Return

1 Thessalonians: Jesus is the Coming King Who Will Return

When I was a kid my mom would tell me to clean my room. When she said to do so leaving it as a directive it was one thing. When she said to do so telling me she’d be back in twenty minutes to check on my progress it was another. The awareness that she was coming back changed my perspective about what I was supposed to be doing. Largely this is the perspective Paul is trying to give these believers in Thessalonica. Jesus is coming back so lets be sure we are doing what we should be doing.

Born For More (Easter Sunday)

We all know what it's like to be driving on the highway behind a slower driver noticing another lane that moves faster. Something clicks inside and we realize, “I was born for more than this!”

It’s interesting how unfulfilled and dissatisfied our lives can be when we have so many things we want. Truthfully life is not about having the most of what we want but rather making the most of what we have.

Distracted Sons

Recently my family and I were watching unthinkable feats of athletic ability on the X Games. Human beings have the incredible ability to hone our faculties, senses and abilities to do unimaginable things. Just think about a time you were blown away by somebody musically, intellectually, athletically. Incredible abilities can be awakened within all of us if we focus in that direction. 

How much more capacity exists within our spiritual faculties, senses and abilities? Perhaps if we took distractions out of our lives we would find out just how spiritually able we truly are.
