God’s Truth for Trying Times - 6/19/21


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 3:6-8

But now that Timothy has come to us from you, and has brought us the good news of your faith and love and reported that you always remember us kindly and long to see us, as we long to see you-- for this reason, brothers, in all our distress and affliction we have been comforted about you through your faith. For now we live, if you are standing fast in the Lord. [1 Thessalonians 3:6-8 ESV] 


CONSIDER: When you root for what's best for other believers, you work for what's best for other believers. This is a perfect example of those beloved by God becoming beloved to one another.


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?
