flourishing faith, increasing care

2 Thessalonians

flourishing faith, increasing care

2 Thessalonians 1:1-4 (JDV)

2 Thessalonians 1:1 Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy: To the congregation of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Thessalonians 1:2 Favor to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Thessalonians 1:3 We ought to thank God always for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, since your faith is flourishing and the care each one of you has for one another is increasing.
2 Thessalonians 1:4 Therefore, we ourselves brag about you among God’s congregations – about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and afflictions that you are enduring.

flourishing faith, increasing care

The congregation of believers in Thessalonica were experiencing persecutions and afflictions, but that did not keep them from going in the right direction. Their faith in God was flourishing and their care for each other was increasing.

Lord, no matter what we face today, may it be said of us that our relationship with you continues to flourish, and our care for one another continues to increase.
