Flourishing Faith and Growing Love
The Apostle Paul writes to the Christ followers in the Ancient Greek city of Thessalonica now called Thessaloniki today. These words, “Dear brothers and sisters, we can’t help but thank God for you, because your faith is flourishing and your love for one another is growing.”
2 Thessalonians 1:3 NLT The city was in a strategic location for trade and travel and the believers there took to the Gospel message eagerly even in the midst of challenge and hardship. Paul’s letter tells us that they were known for their flourishing faith and growing love!
Summer is finally upon us here in Iowa and families will plan trips to make memories and recreate in Gods creation to reenergize and rekindle relationships! Some will remain home and use the sunshine to make home improvements and enjoy time with family and friends! In either case do not neglect what the Thessalonians were known for- Flourishing in their faith in Jesus and growing in their love for God and each other! My prayer for you is that you too will always be known for the same, your flourishing faith and growing love!!!
Enjoy this summer and join us at Hus Church!
God bless you from your Pastor Mel Ramos!
Dear brothers and sisters, we can’t help but thank God for you, because your faith is flourishing and your love for one another is growing.”
2 Thessalonians 1:3 NLT
