We give thanks to GOD always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of GOD and our Father; Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of GOD. For our Gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the Word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost: (1Th 1:2-6)
Those of us who are secure in our relationship with the Father, resting in our Saviour for eternal life, as Kingdom citizens, do His work and accomplish His will in this sinful and broken world. We work in His power, through the indwelling Holy Spirit, and go where He sends, share what He gives, and speak what He says, until all who will come are abiding in Him and all who are His are grown up into the full measure of Him who is our Head, Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, and He is done with us.
We are His Church, members of His body and of one another. We are His ambassadors, representing Him and His Kingdom with the love that is shed abroad in our hearts. We minister to those around us, as He guides and directs, to meet the needs of those who are hurting and in need, as GOD provides, that others may see Jesus in us, the hope of Glory. We love one another, as He loved us and gave Himself for us, and disciple one another so we all may grow in His Word and our knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, being conformed, not to this world, but to the image of His dear Son. We witness with the Word of GOD, knowing how to answer every man that asketh us a reason of the hope that is in us, with meekness and fear, taking the hope of His Good News of reconciliation with the Father through repentance and redemption through faith to this lost and dying world that they might believe and have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
