We are continuing our unit-reading of the books of the Bible. To unit-read is to read straight through a book without stopping. This often helps to get the flow of the book, rather than following the piecemeal approach many of us practice.
Today’s book is I Thessalonians, a book filled with many practical injunctions about living out the Christian life! Here are some of my notes:
I was impressed with the challenge to work hard as a believer, to truly love God’s people, and to rejoice in salvation we have as we wait for Jesus to return for us.
Here’s a prayer for today: “Lord, Great God of my salvation, I praise You for saving me from the coming wrath. Help me today to be a spiritual father to those who need one, to not live as the pagans do, but to live as a child of the LIGHT! In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
