Text: I Thessalonians 1:2-3; 9-10

In part 4 of the series "Marks of a Healthy Church" we see that the early Christians were living in hope. Today people put their hope in the almighty dollar not the Lord Almighty.

Hope is built on:
1) Jesus Christ is alive 1 Cor.15:12-19
2) Jesus is coming again. Does the church today live expecting the return of Christ?

He has rescued us from Hell and from the tribulation:
1) I Thessalonians 5:1-10 "God did not appoint us for wrath"
2) It is this hope that motivates us. It is the reason we should fish for men


Are you living in hope today?

Text: I Thessalonians 1:2-3

In part 3 of the series "Marks of a Healthy Church" we see that not only did the Christians leave their mark but they also fished for men.

Four areas to be a fisher of men:
1) They had a balance of life.
2) They were committed to being heard (vs.8). The message was blasted out as a trumpet.
3) They trumpeted forth the word of the Lord. They turned to the to the sovereign from idols.(see also John 7:40-52 and 8:12-26)
4) They were making a difference. They were known everywhere.

To point the way to truth we should:
1) Honesty - Tell the truth.
2) Urgency - We don't know when the Lord may return.
3) Pray.


Are you truly committed to fishing for men today?

Text: I Thessalonians 1:2-3

As we continue looking at the marks of a healthy church we see in vs. 2 the term "labor of love".  This labor of love by the church at Thessalonica was expressed toward other believers (verse 6).

In verse 7 we see the word "example" - This word means to leave a visible impression.  Who has left a mark on you? See also i Timothy 4:12- for the example of Timothy and how he was to be an example.

Seven areas to be an example:
1) Mindset of serving.
2) Mindset of encouragement.
3) A devotion to one another.
4) The forgiving of one another (Ephesians 4:32).
5) To be committed to one another.
6) To admonish one another. (Galatians 6)
7) We comfort one another through trials and tribulations. (2 Cor 1:3-7)

Are you leaving a mark today?

Text: Thessalonians 1

How is the church in the 21st Century different from the 1st Century church? Listen as Pastor Thad Blount first has a question and discussion session with the Springville Road congregation before teaching on the example of of the Church at Thessalonica.

What are the keys to a healthy church?
The first thing we see is that they put their faith into practice. (vs. 3)
* Their work of faith is explained (vs. 9)
Serve - one who is bound to another.
* A life of continual service - no retirement.
* A life of complete service - open to whatever God wants you to do.
* A life of whole-hearted service - not half way.
* Their service was motivated by worship (vs. 4-5) (See also Mark 10:35-)
