1 Thessalonians and Lives Shared in Love A WORD FROM THE LORD “Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.“ 1 Thessalonians 2:8 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT The love of God in the gospel binds us together into communities of love. In eternity, we won’t need faith or hope, but love will remain! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Teach us to love, Lord Jesus, and give us glimpses of eternity in the lives we share in our communities of love. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for the gift of love and those who love me!
