God is Still In Charge

Lots of crazy things happening here, in the US and around the world. Yes? The same was true for the congregation in Thessalonica to whom St Paul wrote a few letters. Specifically, he wanted to remind the readers that they could trust what they had been taught and that God would not leave them in a state of helplessness. And Jim Scullion shows in his sermon how these things can help us today.

The Day of the Lord

Humans have always been very curious about “the future”. When will X happen? What is going to happen to Y? It seems apparent that the believers in Thessalonica were similarly curious. As much as St Paul cared for this congregation, he rather firmly suggests that they might be asking the wrong question(s) and that there are some things that God does not choose to reveal.

Pleasing God

It is very common in St Paul’s letters [in the New Testament] to begin with theology and then double back with practical application of the theological truths he has attempted to present, to teach, to reinforce. Such is the case in his first letter to the Thessalonians. Listen as Jim Scullion preaches from 1 Thess 4.
