God’s Truth for Trying Times - 6/22/21


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 4:1-2

Finally, then, brothers, we ask and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, just as you are doing, that you do so more and more. For you know what instructions we gave you through the Lord Jesus. [1 Thessalonians 4:1-2 ESV] 


CONSIDER: This also is a summation pointing to how we are to live in Christ, pleasing to God, according to his word. It is a call for increasing sanctification.


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?
