February 26, 2023 Speaker: Keith Bradford Series: 1 Thessalonians

Topic: Biblical Passage: 1 Thessalonians 4:9–12

1 Thessalonians 4:9-12
Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another, 10 for that indeed is what you are doing to all the brothers throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more, 11 and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, 12 so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.

1. Love More

a. More people
b. More often
c. More depth

2. Love by living quiet lives

a. Stand firm on closed-hand issues
b. Show grace on open-hand issues
c. Pray for wisdom to know the difference

3. Love by minding your own business

a. Focus on the plank in your own eye
b. There is a Holy Spirit and you are not Him

4. Love by working with your hands

a. Breaking down the Sacred/Secular distinction
b. God wants to redeem all of our lives
c. Practical application of loving more

The end result is that you will be respected and will not be a burden to others.
