Announcements, June 26, 2015
I'm really looking forward to this Sunday. We'll be in 1 Thessalonians 1 again, specifically verses 6–10. I've been studying this text all week and there are some beautiful truths and connections I want us to see. Specifically, we'll be thinking about what true discipleship looks like, how it is linked to joy, and how it should lead to evangelism and witness. Plus, we'll spend some time unpacking vv9–10, which is one of the clearest and most succinct descriptions of the Christian life in the whole Bible.
Read the passage for yourself several times before Sunday. Pray for God to show us wonderful things from this text. Pray for Him to bring unbelievers to repentance. Pray for him to conform us more into the image of Christ. Come ready to worship our great God and King!
Grace and peace!
