A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD

1 Thessalonians 5:16

“Rejoice evermore.”

CALMLY THINK OF THIS

Here in 1Thess. 5 we are given some good suggestions on how to improve our walk with the Lord.  (1) Rejoice evermore (vs. 16)– be delighted in your salvation experience.  (2) Pray without ceasing (vs 17) -be persistent in our prayer life.  (3) In everything give thanks (vs 18)-in all circumstances look for something to be thankful.  (4) Quench not the Spirit (vs. 19)-We can quench the Spirit by carnal lust, or affection for worldly things.  (5) Despise not prophesyings (vs 20)-Do not despise the preaching of God’s Word. (6) Hold fast that which is good (vs. 21)-Hold fast and support that which is truth.  (7) Abstain from all appearance of evil. (vs .22)-if you think it is evil it probably is…stay away from it.  We don’t do these things to be saved but we will want to do them because we are saved, and we love the Lord.  May God bless you as your walk with the Lord.

Build your faith on the solid foundation of a trustworthy God who never lies.
