God’s Truth for Trying Times - 6/18/21


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: 1 Thessalonians 3:4-5

For when we were with you, we kept telling you beforehand that we were to suffer affliction, just as it has come to pass, and just as you know. For this reason, when I could bear it no longer, I sent to learn about your faith, for fear that somehow the tempter had tempted you and our labor would be in vain. [1 Thessalonians 3:4-5 ESV] 


CONSIDER: Believers want the best for one another. They check in on one another. They comfort one another. They make sure that each other is doing well. They encourage each other in the faith.


THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?
