Basically, just my notes from all three preachings of Ptr. Alfred Baltazar of Victory Metro East. Been his alalay(stage man) for all three services.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Be joyful always,
1 Thessalonians 5:16
Not an escape, a FOCUS
Not always a smile,but an ATTITUDE
1 Peter 1:6
1 Thessalonians 5:17
Not merely a ritual, a conversation.
Not simply REQUESTS, but much more.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
Thanks is something you GIVE to God
Not necessarily because of CIRCUMSTANCES
DISCONTENT negates thankfulness(and vise versa)
In Christ we can love with joy, prayer and thanksgiving.
