The Thessalonians were praised by Paul for their labour in the ministry (1 Thess 1:3).
Paul did not need to sound out the word in their area, because they had already done that.
Even so, he desired to “perfect that which was lacking” in their faith (1 Thess 3:10).
There will always be a need for ministry and growth together in the church. We all have places where we lack in service to the Lord.
Some of us lack more than others, but we all lack.
If you don’t know where you are lacking, then you are not looking hard enough.
Maybe you need a mirror. The Bible makes a good mirror, read it. Your image should be that of Christ (Rom 8:29).
Where do you lack? Where does your ministry lack? You should always know, because that is the way you need to grow.
Our website (and our meetings) has a place to ask your questions to address that which is lacking.
For His glory,
