God’s Truth for Trying Times - 9/27/20


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: ‬2 Thessalonians‬ ‭1:11-12‬ ‭

“To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
‭‭(2 Thessalonians‬ ‭1:11-12‬)


CONSIDER: What does it mean for the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to be glorified and you? Name indicates his character and identity. Who he is and what he does. The idea is that he would be glorified as he works in believers.


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?
