New Life Sunday – Living the dream…

This Sunday is going to be a great day to worship and learn. We will remember the Lord’s Supper, worship, pray, brag on God and study from 1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:5. Paul shares his heart for his disciples from Thessalonica.
 
At the time of this writing, Paul had been separated from his dear friends, he had endured months of serious persecution and yet he was still living the dream (in my opinion :)).
 
Here’s why…
 
Paul had adjusted his expectation for fulfillment. Instead of simply following the culture blindly and caring about stuff, thrills and brands (not sure what the best brands were in the first century), Paul simply engaged with people.
 
If Paul were alive today, his success would not be defined by the amount or quality of things that would fit in the U-haul, or the pics and stories he could post online or even the Rolex watch on his wrist. Paul was totally engaged with his disciples.
 
He went so far as to say, “For now we live, if you are standing fast in the Lord.” Here is the good news, any Christian is eligible to live the dream.
 
God made you and I to find our satisfaction in Him…not in ourselves, ourstuff, ourfun or ourfashion (yes, I made those words up :)).
 
Learn it, share it, live it!
 
Have a great weekend!
Troy
