The conjunction "for" between "Repent" and "Kingdom" implies a cause-and-effect relationship between repentance and the Kingdom of Heaven. In order not to miss it (the Kingdom of Heaven) in that by not repenting, we're walking in the wrong direction and won't encounter it. In order to be part of and involved in it (and by repenting we're in the right relationship-to-God-and-circumstances space to do that). Though Jesus preached an initial life turnaround decision to repent, doesn't life with Him need a hundred little repentances throughout the day?
PRAYER: Dear God, please open my eyes to places where my life is not in flow with the Kingdom of Heaven. Unless otherwise noted all Scripture quotations are taken from the New King James Version®. Sometimes I have a little trouble sorting out exactly what Paul is saying in his maze-like and run on sentences. The result of pursuing such love will be that God establishes their hearts "blameless in holiness"—something that will be completed, however, only at the coming of the Lord Jesus. As we continue to focus on the theme of Christ's second coming through 1 Thessalonians, these verses give us more insights about that anticipated event.
PRAYER: Dear God, thank You that my lifelong pursuit of holiness and blamelessness will be divinely completed at Jesus' return. In our read through 1 Thessalonians we're paying special attention to references of Christ's return.
Jesus' servants on earth will someday join Him in heaven where even the Father will honor them - John 12:26. When we appear before and live with Him, we will experience Jesus' and God's glory in all its eternity - John 17:25. What motivation to serve God and in that serving win the crown of others standing with us at Christ's appearing on earth or our appearing before Him in heaven. What a reason to live each day well, for none of us knows the day He will return or the day we will die. What a hope for the future as we soldier on in the world of sometimes difficult relationships, unpredictable circumstances, and wearing out bodies. PRAYER: Dear Jesus, thank You for Your promise to return and accept me into heaven to live with You.
In today's focus verses, Paul is complimenting the Christians there for their stellar reputation. A dramatic lifestyle change as they turned from idol worship to worship and serve God - 1 Thessalonians 1:9.
A serenity about the future as they no longer feared the "wrath of God" - 1 Thessalonians 1:10.
PRAYER: Dear God, I am challenged by the simple yet bold faith of these one-year-old New Testament Christians.


Whenever we hear the word "covenant" come from God's mouth, we know that He is referring to a serious promise. Zechariah referred to this Branch in his prophecy of a vision of Joshua the High Priest, where an angel said to Joshua: " ' Hear, O Joshua, the high priest. As we celebrate Jesus' incarnation during the Advent season coming up, let's include in our meditation the beautiful teaching of Jesus as the Branch. PRAYER: Dear Jesus, thank You for being the Branch, the fulfillment of God's covenant promise to David. In Canada we had an election a month ago which brought about a change of government and leadership. Popular science insists that the recent increase of world temperature and the severity of weather events (storms, droughts, floods) are the result of human activity. Strange diseases and strains of infection resistant to medicine are appearing and wiping out thousands. In the middle of this uncertainty and flux, God's words to Jeremiah here come as a welcome invitation to us.
God is telling Jeremiah that He will give him privileged information, showing him things that, without God's revelation, would be hidden from him. I love these thoughts for myself and all of us during our times of change, upheaval and uncertainty. He promises to show us things that only He knows, to give understanding about our times so we will know how to pray and live. One thing that surprised me when I first delved into the meaning of the word holy was the aspect of separateness that is its essence.
Who of us hasn't at some time flung up our hands in frustration at some seeming unjust, even foolish verdict delivered by our legal system? And so as we sit, or kneel, or lie prostrate, contemplating God's holiness, we know instinctively that we can never measure up.
Then we burst into praise and worship again — because our God is holy and separate and unlike any other in that way too.
PRAYER: Holy God, I can only come to You on the grounds of Jesus paying the penalty for my sin.
Though our focus verse from Psalm 97  doesn't contain the word "obey" or "obedience" isn't that what hating evil is all about? The Governor (centre) meets the new Principal of the Friends' School, Mr Nelson File and his wife. Alice Coombes, violin, Marielle Prazak, violin, Stephanie Roberts-Thomson, viola and Alexandra Legg, cello. All the performers return to the Ballroom to receive another round of well-deserved applause - see first photo. The basic outline of the class curriculum content will cover different points throughout the year in a fun learning environment with games, projects, and application studies.


Please give me the courage and grace to repent, not only in remorseful thought but in Kingdom-affirming action. But after puzzling the long sentence in our focus verses, I'm hearing him say that he wants the Thessalonians to abound in [have plenty of, be rich in] love toward each other and the world beyond the church walls. Paul's mention of Christ's return in chapter 2 occurs in verse 19 when he describes how he anticipates presenting the Christians in Thessalonica to Christ and how that will work out: "For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? As we begin today, here are some background facts about the book to help us understand its setting. 1 Thessalonians was the first of Paul's letters that has been saved and the first book in the New Testament to be written. Please help me to firm up my expectation inYour return so that it becomes evident in my lifestyle. In the last months we've seen streams of refugees emptying out of countries like Syria and flowing into Europe. One cannot pray effectively without insight into how to pray as well as into what things God truly longs for us to seek after in prayer" - Dick Eastman, "Divine Revelation and Spiritual Warfare" - New Spirit-Filled Life Bible, p.
We are separate from Him, doomed if we too do not get His forgiveness — the forgiveness we claim along with Moses, Aaron and Samuel, on the basis of Jesus paying the penalty for our sin. He wants them to be as rich in love toward others as he (Paul) is rich in love toward them. It was on the route he took after having the vision of the Macedonian man begging, "Come over to Macedonia and help us" - Acts 16:10. God compared the surety of its fulfillment to the everyday occurrences of sunrise and sunset, saying He would no more break His promise to David than abolish night and day (Jeremiah 33:19,20).
Please give me ears to hear Your "great and mighty things" answers and the faith to live by them. So I repent and turn from fear, resentment or irritation to trust via prayer with thanksgiving.
They probably spoke of their expectation to family, friends, and neighbors so that their dear ones would believe too and not be left behind. It shows us also that the heart of the justice which expresses God's nature is retribution, the rendering to men what they have deserved; for this is the essence of the judges task.
Bethany Lager is his teacher Logan Holbrook received a third place trophy at the Illinois Music Association contest. It's clear that they had a reputation for sounding forth their beliefs (1 Thessalonians 1:8). God is also described as "high above all peoples." They tremble at the sight and sound of Him.
