Application for January 25-26, 2014 :: 1 Thessalonians 5:14-17

1 Thessalonians 5:14-17

And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing

===

Here we have a set of prescriptions for how to live in community. There are so many helpful thoughts here.

1. Encourage each other to not be lazy.

2. Find ways to strengthen those who are having difficulty coping

3. Don’t be quick to give up on people.

4. Revenge doesn’t belong in a church – or in the heart of a Christian.

5. Act in service of those in your community, and outside of it.

6. Find ways of thinking about things so that you get joy.

7. Never stop talking to God.

These are all things that all of us can do more of. What steps towards obedience to these prescriptions can you make this week?
