Last week a false nuclear attack alarm sent Hawaiians scrambling for their lives. The power of a nuclear weapon is hard to fathom in it’s ability to wreak devastation and harm. As Christians, we are continually exposed to a power that far exceeds the power of nuclear weapon. This power works in the opposite direction taking broken and helpless souls and transforming them into something radically different and good. It is the power of God! Too often we look at ourselves, or the people around us and wonder if there is any hope that that devastation of sin can be repaired? The answer is a resounding absolutely yes! (Romans 1:16) The Gospel radically transformed forever the lives of the Thessalonian believers (1 Thessalonians 1:9). From the moment of faith in Christ, God began a never ending process of restoring them into the perfection and beauty of the image of Jesus Christ. This is wonderful news for us! Nothing will hinder God from fully overcoming the grasp of sin on our lives (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24).
