The Hope of Faithfulness


Of the many themes that run throughout the Bible, faithfulness is central. Not only are we called to be faithful to God and to have faith in God, but we are also to remember that God is faithful. So much of the Bible reminds us that God is faithful, even when we are not. Once again, then, this passage from 1 Thessalonians reminds us that God is faithful, specifically in regard to the return of Jesus and the sanctifying of God’s people.

Our scriptures this week include the passage Chess is discussing,  1 Thessalonians 5:16-24, as well as Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11, Psalm 126, and John 1:6-8, 19-28
