God’s Truth for Trying Times - 6/28/21
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 5:1-3
Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, "There is peace and security," then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. [1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 ESV]
CONSIDER: This passage refers to those who aren't putting their trust in Christ, but rather are putting their trust in themselves and not thinking about the imminence of the Lord's return.
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?
