Treasure in Jars of Clay Part 8
Thessalonians 5 12-28
We reach the conclusion in our Treasure in Jars of Clay series. Further teachings from Paul's letter to the church in Thessalonica.
Respect and encourage our leaders holding them in the highest regard. Charles Spurgeon says "pray for Gods People".
Paul says, "Warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone".
Standing orders of the Church; Be joyful always. Pray continually. Give thanks in all circumstances. Do not put out the Spirit’s fire.
This is the Christian life, that we just keep walking.

1st Thessalonians 5: 1-11
Our season on 1st Thessalonian’s continues as we look at the first half of chapter 5. The reading looks at the contrast between the certainty that of the Day of the Lord WILL come to the uncertainty of WHEN it will come. Therefore we should wait expectantly, be ready and not caught sleeping.
Romans 12: 9-21
How do we keep our faith strong? Phillip Yantzee talks of our relationship with God. He describes it like a pendulum, sometimes it swings closer to God and other times we find ourselves far away from God. Paul says never be lacking in zeal be aglow with the spirit.

1 Thessalonians 3: 1-13
Our season on 1st Thessalonian’s continues as we look at chapter 3 the trials of life and faith. Well nobody said it was going to be easy and the Bible focuses a lot of difficulty’s and trials in our lives but it’s how we react and respond to the trials that is life changing. Do we rely on Gods Strength? Will our character and faith be strengthened by these experiences?

1st Thessalonians Chapter One
“Grace and peace be upon you"
Today we start a new series on the book of 1st Thessalonians entitled “Treasure in Jars of Clay”. Paul writes to the church in Thessalonica in which he explores and declares Biblical truths. It’s a letter of encouragement to a young church. So we look at chapter one and we see how God’s grace has touched our lives and given us a victory and salvation in God.
“Did Jesus really defeat death?"
We meet together as a church family to celebrate Easter together. And we have a very important question to study and that is “Did Jesus really defeat death?” The resurrection of Jesus is the single most important thing that has ever happened in history of the world. The world will tell you a very different story, one of no resurrection, one of no hope, one of no future. Where are you on this road of recognition of God’s love for us and the salvation and hope we have in him?

“The Wonder of God's Word"
In our final sermon on this series we look at Psalm 119. God is like a SAT NAV he guides us to our destination. The Word of God brings Joy, it offers us guidance and brings us hope.
