Tucked away in the third Chapter of 1 Thessalonians there is this little phrase – 'because of you'. Just a few words but it expresses so much. Paul had preached and ministered in Thessalonica on three separate occasions but had to leave the city because of opposition. He may have wondered whether what he had done had made any difference, but then he received reports that encouraged and caused him joy – because of you. In this sermon we look at that little phrase and talk about how people’s lives are changing and growing to know Jesus better because of what’s happening here at HumeRidge.
