A Good Destiny

Pastor Jay resumes his sermon series, Be Encouraged, Brothers¬†with “A Good Destiny” from 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11.

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 (ESV)

For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

We have a good destiny.

  • God has not destined us for wrath.
  • God has destined us to obtain salvation.
  • God has destined us to live with Christ whether we are asleep or awake.
  • This is another one another.
