1 Thessalonians 3:6-13 • May 17, 2020 • Pastor Doug L. Nelms Jr.
Pain and isolation often blind us from knowing what to do next. This is true no matter where you are on your spiritual journey. In fact, because of the pain and isolation of the time we are living in, every human system, alliance, government, company, church and family are asking this same question, what do we do next? For some of us, this might even be a daily or perhaps hourly question. For the people in the Bible, it is no different. The narrative, history, poetry, and letters contained within it are from and about people under varying levels of distress. The text we have before us today gives one of the clearest answers to that question. During distance and distress, God’s desire is for you to abound in holiness and love.
