Faith, Love, Hope
August 16, 2020
Rev. Dennis R. Hartman
The Christian life is work, sweat, steadfastness. Faith involves action. Love involves effort. Hope involves endurance. Living for the Lord requires that we press on toward the goal that is before us; unless we believed in vain. If we are going to follow our Lord into heaven, then we need to apply ourselves in several ways. This passage reminds us of what we should be doing on a regular basis. Hopefully this will be a reminder for each one of us to excel in our life as those who are running the race to win. When Paul wrote this letter to the church at Thessalonica, he mentions their work of faith, labor of love and steadfastness of hope. He gives thanks that they are showing the people around them the practical outworking of their faith in difficult times.
