We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.

– 2 Thessalonians 1:3 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

There are many measurements to determine the success of a church, but some of the main measurements we use deal with the number of people attending on Sunday and how big the offerings are. The apostle Paul didn’t used those calibrations to determine the health of a church. He cared more about the measure of their faith and their capacity to love each other in tangible ways. What would happen if we adopted these benchmarks? We may find that some churches that we think are healthy are not, while others stand tall in the eyes of God.
