2 THESSALONIANS 1:1-5 | Confident | Jan 7, 2018

Paul, in his second letter to the church in Thessalonica, encourages them to continue to grow in their faith in spite of the persecution they are facing.  He encourages them not to look at their circumstances but to place their hope in Christ and find their confidence in God’s promises.  He gives a picture of what a healthy church looks like as a means of encouragement to the church to continue growing in their faith and trust in Jesus.
