BIBLE STUDY FOR APRIL 19-25, 2020
Dr. Thomas Q. Robbins - Teacher
Are you aware that God has chosen you? Those of who know Jesus Christ personally and have trusted him for forgiveness, have been specifically chosen by God! And amazingly, He chose and selected you even before your decision to ever respond to the gospel.
With this message, Dr Thomas Q Robbins begins an extended series in the New Testament book of First Thessalonians. He begins with what the Apostle Paul teaches about being chosen by God, a subject that we don’t hear much about in current teaching and preaching. That’s one of the reasons this subject seems so foreign to our normal way of thinking related to daily human experiences. But concept is a spiritual matter and one that is so important to understand.
If you are uncomfortable about considering that you are “chosen by God” or have become quite accustom to this reality, stay with the message that may be in progress...if not go ahead and start the audio. You may discover or rediscover something very beautiful and motivating. Thomas Q has chosen scripture in First Thessalonians -- Chapter 1, verses 1-5 helps us understand why God chose us and hear that Faith is the acceptance of the reality that God has chosen you, and that faith is validated by how you live your daily life with others. Have you ever thought about that?
Along with our being chosen, and our acceptance of that reality, comes the responsibility of working out our faith by living differently, living in hope, and in relationships where the love of Jesus Christ is able to be lived out... one to another... First Thessalonians, verses 1-5.
