1 Thessalonians 1, Paul said: We always thank God for you and pray for you constantly. We never forget your loving deeds as we talk to our God and Father about you, and your strong faith and steady looking forward to the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. We know that God has chosen you, dear brothers, much beloved of God. 5 For when we brought you the Good News, it was not just meaningless chatter to you; no, you listened with great interest. What we told you produced a powerful effect upon you, for the Holy Spirit gave you great and full assurance that what we said was true. And you know how our very lives were further proof to you of the truth of our message. Then you yourselves became an example to all the other Christians in Greece. And now the Word of the Lord has spread out from you to others everywhere, for wherever we go we find people telling us about your remarkable faith in God. We don’t need to tell them about it, for they keep telling us about the wonderful welcome you gave us, and how you turned away from your idols to God so that now the living and true God only is your Master. And they speak of how you are looking forward to the return of God’s Son from heaven Jesus, whom God brought back to life and he is our only Savior from God’s terrible anger against sin. FRIENDS, IT HAS BEEN 2016 YEARS NOW SINCE JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS AND 3 DAYS LATER, AROSE FROM THE DEAD. JESUS PROMISED THAT HE WILL RETURN FOR US WHEN HE HAS PREPARED OUR MANSIONS. WE DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH TIME WE HAVE LEFT, BEFORE HIS RETURN BUT WE SHOULD START LOOKING UP BECAUSE OUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NEAR. John 14:1-3, “Let not your heart be troubled. You are trusting God, now trust in me. There are many homes up there where my Father lives, and I am going to prepare them for your coming. When everything is ready, then I will come and get you, so that you can always be with me where I am. If this weren’t so, I would tell you plainly.
