I see three great Christian characteristics in 1 Thessalonians 1:3, characteristics which are repeated famously in 1 Corinthians chapter 13: faith, hope and charity. These are three characteristics which the church of the Thessalonians were known for; these are characteristics which we as Christians should also be known for.
1 Thessalonians 1:3 “Remembering without [...]
What a wonderful thing it is when we pray for our fellow Christians. Uplifting each other in prayer is a heavenly, or Godward expression of our concern and love for our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. With your prayer to God for other Christians, you are showing God that others are important to [...]
In the last half of the verse, Paul wishes grace and peace to the church. How many different places do we look for peace and satisfaction today? Some people look to food for their safety. Some people accumulate money and property in a way to find peace within. As many things as there are on the earth, people have looked into them all to find peace within.

I studied Philippians 4:13 today, which happens to be my wife Connie’s life verse.
We are asked throughout the Bible to do things for the Lord. God wants us to accomplish things for Him while we are here on this earth. We are to serve Him and He is to get all the glory. [...]
Paul talks about something he’s learned in Philippians 4:11, and some knowledge that he has acquired. It is something that most of us today have not learned — and that is to be content with our situation as it relates to personal belongings. Here is what Paul says he has learned.
Philippians 4:11 “Not [...]
Does your church support missionaries? Do you care about these missionaries and are you like-minded with them? If you support these missionaries, how do you show it?
