Praise the Lord for the genuine Christian life for the proper church life revealed in the book of 1 Thessalonians! Out of our organic union with the Lord issues such a life of three dimensions in the light of the Lord’s return, having faith as its foundation, love as its process, and hope as its consummation. This faith is toward God, this love is toward the saints, and this hope is in the Lord’s imminent return! We need to be those who live, walk, and work by faith and love in the hope of the Lord’s coming back! May we continue, over the next few weeks, to delve into the deep spiritual significance of Paul’s writing in the book of 1 Thessalonians.
“We must become familiar with the Bible. I hope all the young people would devour the Life-studies. If I had found such materials on the Bible when I was young, I would have stayed up late at night, swallowing up what was in them!”
(Witness Lee, The World Situation and God’s Move, Message 4 – God’s Ultimate Move to Carry Out His Eternal Intention)
What a privilege to have read five messages together corporately! As one saint commented, this is truly “the best book club ever!”
There are no assigned messages for Saturday or Lord’s Day. This time can be used for catching up or for going back to review what was read this week.
