Paul begins this chapter with much of the same focus on his thankfulness in the Thessalonian church. We see that the Thessalonians are still enduring trials and persecutions, but that they are enduring (1:4). Paul also reminds the church of Christ’s return, and the judgment to come.
These are a reminder for us to pray for
LOVE & HOLINESS.
We’re excited about what God is doing!
When Jason was in college he interned for a small business and by God’s grace had a Christian boss. Other non-believing co-workers, with long tenure, instantly noticed a connection between Jason and the boss. Not as a point of jealousy, but that because they were Christians, even though they knew each other a short time, they quickly had relationship. We all serve one God and fellowship comes freely between believers even when you first meet them.
