The Real Deal Continued

Pastor Jay continues a new sermon series, Be Encouraged, Brothers. This week’s message is “The Real Deal Continued,” from 1 Thessalonians 1:4-5.

1 Thessalonians 1:4-5 (ESV)

For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.

Be encouraged when you see the genuine work of God in those who believe the gospel.

  • Because this is evidence that God loves them.
  • Because this is evidence that God has chosen them.
  • Because this evidence is that was there from the start.
