Message: Anticipation! (1 Thessalonians 1)

  • by

The Thessalonian Christians are suffering due to persecution. Suffering = pressure. It is more than mild discomfort but great difficulty. The idea of suffering as pressure is like pressing of grapes until they burst in the wine making process. What comes out of you when you are being pressed?

I am PATIENTLY and TRUSTINGLY awaiting for Jesus’ ARRIVAL!

  • Anticipation is building as His promised arrival gets CLOSER.
  • They were facing trials but they were anticipating Jesus’ return.
  • Focus on the right thing: Quit fixating on the PROBLEM but be focused on your PROVIDER
  • Psalm 121:1 I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? 2 My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
