Always Be Thankful – 1 Thessalonians 5

Wow, there is so much here! We could spend days on this chapter.

After reading it several times – a few things stood out among the many others:

6 So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be sober.

8 But let us who live in the light think clearly, protected by the body armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation.

Excellent wisdom for us all. The verses below really hit home, and I confess that I need work in these areas:

16 Always be joyful.

17 Keep on praying.

18 No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

It is always easier for me to panic and forget to pray. The depth of our faith is revealed in how we respond to situations. A barometer of our faith is our joy and thankfulness.

I’m going to really meditate on this chapter for a while. Great stuff!
