Today we begin a new summer series on the power of our stories with a look at one 1 Thessalonians 1. The story about this little church had become widely known throughout the region because of the character of the people, the change the gospel worked in their lives, the suffering they endured, and the victory that God had promised them. Like this church, we have a story worth telling. You have a story worth telling, because you have a story worth living. A gospel story that God has started and will finish.
