The shortest verse in the Greek New Testament

As I was going through some notes of mine from college, here’s what I took away from Dr. Dowell Flatt’s comments on 1 Thes 5.16: “Always rejoice”, about why we should rejoice:

  1. It’s God-given.
  2. It’s possible.
  3. It’s practical.
  4. It’s evangelistic.
  5. It’s commanded.

I also noted two references that he gave: Lk 6.22-23 and Jas 1.2-3.
