Paul gives further marks or traits of a flourishing church. A church is not only an organization, more importantly, the church is a group of people dedicated to following the teaching of Jesus and living according to God’s design as prescribed in Scripture. 1 Thessalonians 5:12-22 is one such place where marks of the church are described. There is nothing in here about presentation, lights, building, appearance, etc., everything Paul lists here is regarding our hearts attitude, our words, and our actions. Do those reflect Christ?
