Your Setting Shapes Your Story

Episode Notes

“Where you are” shapes “who you are.” Our context has the power to dramatically influence how our story unfolds.

This week, as we kick off a new series through 1 Thessalonians, Pastor Ben Stuart introduces us to the context that the letter was written in and shows us how Paul’s words to the church in Thessalonica can still encourage us today.

Key Verses / 1 Thessalonians 1:1-3, Acts 17:1-9

Do you feel frustrated by a pattern of personal failures, overwhelmed by a chaotic culture, or disillusioned by a lack of meaning in everyday life? Your struggles do not mean you’re doomed. They’re actually a sign that you are alive. Now it’s a question of whether you will struggle well.

Pastor Ben’s new book, Rest & War, is a field guide designed to equip you to walk elegantly through the battlefield of life.

Rest & War is out now, order your copy today!

At Passion City Church, we believe that because God has displayed the ultimate sacrifice in Jesus, our response to that in worship must be extravagant. It is our privilege, and our created purpose, to reflect God’s Glory to Him through our praise, our sacrifice, and our song.
