We cannot believe what we do not know. Nor can we live any higher than our beliefs. It is important then to hear the word, receive it by taking it into our spirit, and accept it as the word of God.

It was obvious to Paul that God was doing a work in the lives of the Thessalonians. They had turned from idols to the true God, Jesus. We should be yearning for God to be working in our lives as we continuously turn back to Him.

1 Thessalonians 1:4-8

August 18, 2013

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 40:03 (36.8 MB)

We love Him only because He first loved us. God is sovereign and He has chosen whom He will save and yet He holds us responsible for our decision to accept or reject Him. The best way to know if you are chosen is to choose Christ.
