2 Thessalonians

cause of confidence

2 Thessalonians 3:3-5 (JDV)

2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.
2 Thessalonians 3:4 We have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will continue to do what we command.
2 Thessalonians 3:5 May the Lord direct your hearts to God’s care and Christ’s endurance.

cause of confidence

How was Paul confident that the churches he founded would continue to stay true to the gospel, and live the lives he commanded them to live?

  • He trusted the Lord to strengthen them
  • He trusted the Lord to protect them from the evil one
  • He trusted the believers to remain faithful
  • He prayed for the Lord to make their hearts caring hearts
  • He prayed for the Lord to make their hearts strong enough to endure as Christ endured

Such is the nature of our trust in the faithfulness of our Lord.
