Texts Read by Reid J.
Exodus 33:12-23 and 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10You followed our example and the example of the Lord. You suffered, but the Holy Spirit made you glad. You became an example for all the Lord’s followers in Macedonia and Achaia. And because of you, the Lord’s message has spread everywhere in those regions. Now the news of your faith in God is known all over the world, and we don’t have to say a thing about it. (Saint Paul, to the churches in Thessalonica)
Weekly Message from Doug
“Bones, Nerves and All!”
Watching the injury to the NBA Celtics star forward Gordon Hayward this week reminded me of watching the football injury of Joe Theisman. Unlike Hayward, Theismann broke his tibia and fibula…and did not return to sports. We pray Gordon Hayward has a full recovery, regardless of whether he plays basketball again. I see parallels between rehabilitation which injured players endure and the perseverance Saint Paul celebrates among the persecuted Thessalonian churches. How do they recover? When 1940’s golf superstar Ben Hogan was severely injured in a car accident, what gave his wife Valerie the confidence to say, “Don’t listen to Ben [doubt his future]; he will be back, bones, nerves and all”? What do you know of faith, hope and love that leads you to believe you can persevere, or that the church or the nation can come back, bones, nerves and all?
