2 Thessalonians 1:11-12

To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

For a Helmet the Hope of Salvation

This summer I’ve been involved in the early morning women’s Bible study on 1 & 2 Thessalonians over Zoom.  It’s been so great to connect with women I wouldn’t have otherwise had the opportunity to see during this Covid-19 period of time. One section that the study highlighted was 1 Thessalonians 5:8: “But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.”…

The Prayers of Habakkuk

The Prayers of Habakkuk I have been “chewing on” the book of Habakkuk and found the prophet’s prayers very inspiring and encouraging, especially considering the various crises we are currently facing. In the first two chapters, Habakkuk laid out two complaints before the LORD. After receiving God’s answers, the prophet found great comfort, joy, and strength in God’s promises despite the coming severe judgement on Judah.  Witnessing the prevalent violence, destruction, and injustice in Judah, Habakkuk was deeply troubled and…

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. (ESV)
