How do you push through in tough times?  When we face insurmountable odds, we are pushed to the limits, it is hard to keep going through to the end.

Why is it that some people seem to thrive in that setting?  When the deck is stacked against them, an inner strength manifests itself and not only do they keep going, but they seem to exude joy in the midst of pain...what kind of life stamina produces that?

The church that Paul and Silas started in Thessalonica was a group of people like that.  Under immense persecution and insurmountable odds from the start, joy and faithfulness just exploded from them all over the map of the world around them...they were legend, because they had a "grit" about them, and Grit Don't Quit.

Join us as Pastor Jim takes us on a journey through Paul's letter to the church at Thessalonica, and see why Paul was stunned at what became of what God led him to start.
