Statement (1 Thessalonians 5:)

Work of Faith
Labor of Love
Patience of Hope

Statement (1 Thessalonians 5:)

Work of Faith
Faith as a saving faith, is faith in God that Jesus died for my sins. Not just faith in anything.
Faith looks back. “Faith alone saves, but the faith that saves is not alone” John Calvin wrote. Faith looks to the past, when we accepted the Lord, when we were Born Again. Faith looks to the Cross and answered prayer.

Statement (1 Thessalonians 5:)

Labor of Love
We should have Love for “one another” or those around us, without which love, we cannot claim we know God. Love is for the present. So we should have love for God and love for man, since Jesus said all the law and prophets hang on those two commands.

Statement (1 Thessalonians 5:)

Patience of Hope
The Hope here is a certainty, it is a known certain event, like the Return of Jesus, that gives hope, not a hope that an event may occur. The Hope of Salvation, the Blessed Hope, looks to the return of Jesus with certainty to the future.

Statement (1 Thessalonians 5:)

The Grace that does not change your life, will not save your soul.

Statement (1 Thessalonians 5:)

The ‘Work of Faith’ looks to the past.
The ‘Labor of Love’ looks to the present.
The ‘Patience of Hope’ looks to the future.

Statement (1 Thessalonians 5:)

“God hasn’t appointed us to the day of Wrath, the Great Tribulation. It is a time of judgment and the church is not going through it because Christ bore our judgment. Perhaps you were saying ‘McGee do you think you were good enough to be taken out in the rapture?’ No, I’m not even good enough to be saved. But God save me by his grace, and when he comes to take his church out of this world, I’m going along with all the Super Duper saints – because of the grace of God. But to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. God has not destined us for wrath for the Great Tribulation but for salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Pastor J Vernon McGee
