Today's Good News


04/20          1 Thessalonians 1:6-9

So you received the message with joy from the Holy Spirit in spite of the severe suffering it brought you. In this way, you imitated both us and the Lord. 7 As a result, you yourselves became an example to all the Christians in Greece. 8 And now the word of the Lord is ringing out from you to people everywhere, even beyond Greece, for wherever we go we find people telling us about your faith in God. We don’t need to tell them about it, 9 for they themselves keep talking about the wonderful welcome you gave us; and how you turned away from idols to serve the true and living God.


Live your life in such a way that all will know that you are following the Lord. How do we do this? Love one another, care for the hurting and die to self for others. This will require the leadership of the Holy Spirit. You cannot live this way in the flesh.
