Matthew Week 3: Day 3
Pray and read
Ask God to be at work by his Spirit as you read his word that you might grow in love, loyalty and likeness to the Lord Jesus. Read 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11.
Paul wrote his first letter to the Thessalonians perhaps only 20 years after Jesus’ death and resurrection.
What might “the day of the Lord” refer to? How will it come?
Paul reminds the Thessalonians about who they are. What truths does he tell them about themselves? How does he compare them to “others?”
What instructions does Paul give the Thessalonians about how they ought to wait?
What might it look like for you to be awake and sober today, putting on faith, hope and love?
How can you encourage and build others up?
Thank God for the certainty of your salvation in Christ.
Ask God to encourage you with the hope of that salvation today, that you might entrust yourself to him.
