Our reading challenge for the day is 2 Thessalonians 1-3. I’ll hit a few highlights. You make comments too and fill in the gaps. What strikes you as specially significant?
2 Thessalonians 1 - The Thessalonians are growing in faith and love. Yet they endure persecution. God will reward them and bring affliction on those who persecute them.
2 Thessalonians 2 - People have been deceiving the Thessalonians, saying the end has come. God will deceive those people because they have refused to believe his truth. Christians, on the other hand, are to hold fast to the truth, that which was taught to them from the apostolic tradition.
2 Thessalonians 3 - The apostles want the Thessalonians to pray for them as well. We all need people to pray for us that we would stand firm in Christ and not give up hope. In that hope we go ahead and do our work, serving the Lord and our neighbors.
