Love – Tender Yet Like Steel

When the Message we preached came to you, it wasn’t just words. Something happened in you. The Holy Spirit put steel in your convictions. 1 Thessalonians 1:5 MSG

Although great trouble accompanied the Word, you were able to take great joy from the Holy Spirit!-taking the trouble with the joy, the joy with the trouble. 
1 Thessalonians 1:6 MSG

Do you know that all over the provinces of both Macedonia and Achaia believers look up to you? 1 Thessalonians 1:7 MSG

There are people I look up to because of their faith. All have been through difficult times and come out stronger for them. But what I notice about them is their sweetness and graciousness, how they’re loving. No bitterness, just peace.

These are the people that the Lord has His hand on. When they were saved they allowed the Holy Spirit tongue of fire to teach and tender and remake them. And as tender as they are towards people they’re strong as steel in life. They don’t worry about troubles because the Lord goes with them through each day.
