The Continuing Walk of a Believer

I Thessalonians 5:1-28

Read: 1 Thess 4:16-18

You will remember that these epistles were written to real people who were experiencing real problems in the real world. You might say that, they are a lot like we are. Their world, as well as ours, was hostile to their Christian faith. There are at least four reasons why Paul wrote these letters to the church at Thessalonica.

Now that sounds like exactly what we need tonight, doesn't it? So let's listen tonight as Paul speaks to us about how we should living in this world in light of Christ's soon return.

I. Be Watchful v1-11

II. Be Mindful (12-16)

III. Be Careful in Worship (17-28)

Our walk as a believer is important not only to us, but to others as well. We are epistles open and read of all men. It is important that we watch how we walk in this present world that we might not bring reproach upon Christ. We must be watchful, be mindful, and be careful.
