Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)
This was just part of Paul’s final instructions to the Thessalonians, he instructed the brothers and sisters to live godly lives, help one another in their faith, and to encourage each other daily. Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. As Christian’s we need to live Godly lives and set good examples; always striving to do what is good for each other and for everyone else. Pray continually, and thank The Lord for everything in all circumstances. When God does something good in our lives we need to rejoice, and give God all the glory. Celebrate God’s unconditional love for us.
Heavenly Father, Holy Spirit and teacher,
I ask for your power and knowledge. Instruct us and guide us through our daily lives so we can lift others up, set good examples, and seize those moments when they are presented to us in order to rejoice and celebrate in you! These words I pray, in Jesus’ name, Amen!
