Struggles - 1 Thessalonians

main image

We want to welcome each one of you to Union Avenue this morning! If you are a first time guest, would you take just a moment and fill out the information section of your "Order of Worship" and turn it in when the offering plates are passed before my message? 

Struggles, we all have them. We struggle as individuals, as a family, in the midst of national crisis and even as a the church. A struggle is a time to reflect, to understand and to learn. 

Today we will begin our new summer series looking at the struggles that the church in Thessalonica dealt with in regards to their beginning.  The city of Thessalonica was full of people that were overwhelmed with real life struggles and were in need of a life changing transformation. The city was very diverse. Within the area were a number of Romans, Greeks, and Jews and the religious landscape was foggy at best.  In Acts 17:1-9 as we are introduced to the area we begin to see a passion on the part of Paul to lead the city.

Today’s main point will be  "The Gospel Motivates and The Gospel Transforms." For Paul's young church plant to grow and survive in such a diverse culture Paul knew that the Gospel would indeed have to motivate and transform the culture, the community and the entire area. We also at UABC need to have the Gospel continue to motivate and transform us as we navigate our individual struggles and corporate struggles. - Serving Him, Pastor Jeff
