“Wildfire vs Faith Carriers”
· You are a carrier of something, and you are infectious
· When people get near you, they catch whatever you have
· Is what you’re carrying worth catching?
1 Thessalonians 1:1-3, 5, 7, 8
We always thank God for all of you and pray for you constantly. 3 As we pray to our God and Father about you, we think of your faithful work, your loving deeds, and the enduring hope you have because of our Lord Jesus Christ.
5 For when we brought you the Good News, it was not only with words but also with power
7 As a result, you have become an example to all the believers
8 And now the word of the Lord is ringing out (SPREADING) from you to people everywhere, even beyond Macedonia and Achaia, for wherever we go we find people telling us about your faith in God.
- Where there is fear, uncertainty, famine, broken people, empty hearts, lost lives, GOOD NEWS SPREADS LIKE FIRE
“News of this spread all through that region” Matthew 9:26 NIV
“News of Him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee” Mark 1:28 NIV
“So the Word of God spread. The number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly.” Acts 6:7 NIV
Why did this GOOD NEWS spread? Because they were…
(3 Marks of a Contagious Christ-Carrier)
Faithful in the work
Full of Loving deeds
Had an Enduring hope
Fear is contagious – a wildfire… But so is faith, love, & hope BECAUSE of the Lord Jesus Christ.
- We don’t know what tomorrow holds but we know Who holds tomorrow.
