Weekly Rap-Up with Tedashii
Paul wrote his first letter to the church at Thessalonica to encourage and build them up. He tells them to be hopeful in these times of trouble, Christ will return and there is life after death. So our motivation is that we should continue in our faith.
Json - Keep the Faith (1 Thessalonians)
Grace and Peace, take a seat. Hey, let’s get into this man (1:1). It’s been a minute. So, let’s get it because I’m amped on his name. Now as you all know, Paul wrote and said he couldn’t wait to see us (2:17). He said he tries but I quote, “Satan still impedes us” (2:18). So until he can make it, we’ll read the letters he sends that says he’s not forsaken even when oppression begins (1:4, 5:23-24). So, let’s begin with the fifth lesson for today and tomorrow. Because Paul answers questions you have about today and tomorrow (Ch. 5). And whether or not the Saviors coming back, today or tomorrow (5:2). Instead of sharing the time, he exhorts us to pray and stay watchful (5:6). It’s easily seen like signs of a pregnant woman who shows (5:3) and a thief in the night is surprise if you’re watching your doors (5:4-6). So tomorrow’s worries weaken when we’re waiting with hope (5:8) anticipating his arrival keeps you ready for sure. Lesson four can bring us more of an insight to this section (4). Especially when we start discussing the dead’s resurrection (4:14-16). Remember Paul wrote, those who are sleeping “that past on” won’t be passed over. So stop the grieving (4:16) for if we believe in Jesus Christ and that He’s still living (4:14). We also believe He’ll take those who are asleep as Christians (4:14). So the topic of tomorrow is not my concern, just the fact He’s coming back and that He’s soon to return (4:16). Now with that on my mind, it makes today so crucial, because the God who’s coming back desires to live through you (1:5-6).
You took the word as it is. Let His love be fruitful in (1:6). Your works of faith and love, so keep the faith (1:3). It’ll get a little harder. Yeah, yeah (2:2). It’ll get a little rougher. Oh Yeah (2:14). But there is hope in his promise so Keep the Faith (1:3).
Now I know you wondering how this affects us today man (4:13). But you need the background to be effective today. Do you remember lesson two when Paul called us his crown (2:19). His boast before the Lord because we was holding it down (2:19-20). Because we heeded to the lessons that he taught to the crowd (2:13-14). So much so we all decided we would take our idols down (1:9). And the news begin to spread fast all over town (1:8-9). From our people to their people in the towns that surround (1:8). We proclaim the name of Jesus while we walking around. And it’s crazy because our neighbors started following us around (1:6-7). Lesson 1 gives the reason why we’re all in this now. God predestined he would save this Thessalonians town (1:4). He elected us for truth and Paul strolled into town (1:5). Without the Gospel as a lifeguard, we all would have drown (2:13). In the sins of men and trends that are bogging you down (1:9). We were homeless with no family like a dog in a pound (1:4). Till God decided to go looking through the lost and the found (5:24). And He spared us from His wrath that He’ll be calling down (1:10). Don’t you get it? We did, that’s the reason why we miss him. Paul was like our father who taught us all how to be Christian (2:11). Like with the motherless, He nurtured us, and showed us his vision (2:7-8). He loves us that’s why when he prays we’re constantly mentioned (1:2-3). So the call for us today is we continue his mission (4:10). Long to lead a quiet life and to attend to your own business (4:11).
There is joy in the firmness of your faith (3:7-9). There is life in you embracing his grace (3:8). So keep praying/and rejoicing in thanksgiving, and loving in patience and just keep the faith (5:15-18). There is hope in His return and that He will come (1:3,10). There is peace in the promise of His love (5:23-24). So keep praying and rejoicing in thanksgiving, and loving in patience. And just keep the faith (5:15-18).
So in conclusion for today, I say continue in faith (1:3). With love, hoping in the day the Lord will snatch us away (1:3). Be an example for the saints that we find in Achaia (1:7). Standing strong no matter what reproducing the savior because the joy of a teacher is when his students can grasp it. It’s mastered and we live on through you training up the masses (1:8). And honor you leaders in love, appreciate their work (5:12). Servant leaders making disciples as we create the church. Remember to exhort and comfort to alleviate the hurt (5:14). And run from every form of evil to not deviate the church (5:22). Though we imitate the saints and the God that we serve (1:6). There are still great afflictions that can rattle your nerves. And this life will get so trife and it’ll throw you a curve. And there are people who live evil feeding a sexual urge (4:5). So be holy, living solely for His glory (5:19-22), possessing your body rightly in the purity that he showed us (4:3-4, 5:22) because no matter how much we grow, or no matter how far we go, we still could do some more even if Timothy gave a good report (3:6). So lets continue to work and labor and endure in this race (4:1), eagerly hoping for the moment we will see His face (1:10).
