1 Thessalonians 5:16 Context
13And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves. 14Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. 15See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. 16Rejoice evermore. 17Pray without ceasing. 18In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19Quench not the Spirit.
During the stress of all that is going on in the world today, it is hard to find the secret to rejoicing in the midst of it all. I found this verse today that cheered me up. I hope it gives us encouragement to stop and think. Think about the moment and embrace it. Rejoice. Life is worth living. Hope is real. And loving the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind. Rejoice that He has us in His arms and is watching out for us. REJOICE!
