In 1 Thessalonians 1:8-10 the Apostle Paul tells of the peoples great faith. He says their faith is known far and wide. It says…
1. They turned from serving idols to serving God.
2. They have a vibrant faith that others have heard about. Their faith and reputation goes before them.
3. They are looking forward to return of Jesus.
4. They are rescued from future judgment because of their faith in Christ.
Wouldn’t it be great if people said these things about our churches? Wouldn’t it be great if our faith reputation went before us?
