ALWAYS PDF Print

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” ! Thessalonians 5:16–18

These three verses are all actually one thought expressed together in the closing verses of Paul’s letter to the church in Thessalonica.  Even though a very brief passage, we find it packed with difficulty due to it’s scope. 
If you care to take note, we as Christ-followers are taught to . . .

always rejoice,
always pray,
and always give thanks – in ALL circumstances.

Hmmm?  I’m not sure I know this person.  In fact the department that is perpetually swamped in any church is the complaint department!  Facebook can only dream of possessing the speed of the church gossip-vine with fake news.  It’s quick!

Paul, however, is only concerned with one truth – that there is a specific (will of God) for Christians and that “will” must supersede all other circumstances!

Now every generation of Christendom has discovered the difficulty this passage – so please don’t think you’re the first!  But understand this, if you wish to walk within His will you must obey these “always” in every moment and action of life.

There’s a reason surrender is required.

I give thanks for you today!

– Dale
