Rev. Daniel Poon
Many people want to know how to live the life God wants us to live. Therefore this week Rev. Daniel shared with us from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV), “16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1. Always live joyful lives
God doesn’t promise us a smooth life after becoming a Christian. However we have the power from God to choose to let go of the past and face our present with a positive attitude. In this way we can truly live a life of peace and joy.
2. Pray continually
In Luke 22:42 our Lord Jesus prayed that “yet not my will, but yours be done.” He set us a great example of faith in our Heavenly Father. So keep on praying and trust that God will give the best to us.
3. Give thanks in all Circumstances
We need to be grateful for whatever God has given to us, because “we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28, [NIV])
