A good church report

July 23rd, 2009

In the New Testament book of 1 Thessalonians we see the Apostle Paul gives the local church at Thessalonica a good report about how they are going.

In 1 Thessalonians 1:3 he says, “As we pray to our God and Father about you, we think of your faithful work, your loving deeds, and the enduring hope you have because of our Lord Jesus Christ“.

Paul goes on to say in verses 5-7 that they were faithful under trial and as a result they were a great example to Christians everywhere. Paul even says that they news has spread far and wide amongst the other churches.

Wouldn’t it be good for our local churches to be known far and wide for our faithful works, our loving deeds and our constant hope we have in Christ?

I wonder what things we can do today that will make a positive impact on our local communities. I think that is worth some reflection time today.

God Bless,
