1 Thessalonians 1:1-10 introduces to the three key virtues that sparked a spiritual renewal in Thessalonica. They were the virtues that helped shaped the Church of Thessalonica into a model church: faith, hope, and love. At The Bridge, we say “Love God (faith). Love Others (love). Make a Difference (hope).” Regardless of the terminology we use, we must be relentless to our devotion with God, community with other believers, and impact on the world. As we become imitators of Christ, we too can become an example to all believers. Not only that, but may we shine as beacons in a dark world.
