Guiding Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 2:10 ‘You are witnesses, and so is God, of how holy, righteous and blameless we were among you who believed.’

🔴 Turn From Idolatry

written by: Torrie Slaughter

The Thessalonians became true worshippers of our Most High God! Paul brought the Gospel to them, and they received Jesus. What a joy to see transformation occur! Despite opposition, they stood firm.

How can we use this portion of Paul’s letter to encourage our steadfastness?

  1. Create relationships with mature Christians. (1 Thessalonians 2:11)
  2. Live in a manner that reflects Christ’s love. (1 Thessalonians 2:12)
  3. Beware of false teachers and pray for discernment. (1 Thessalonians 2:13-14)
  4. Remember that you will face opposition and prepare for it. (1 Thessalonians 2:15)

We are witnesses living under Grace. We must remain humble, disciplined, and work to maintain integrity. As you study and meditate on God’s Word, I hope that you are encouraged to think about your thoughts, behaviors, and influences. Stand firm and be of good cheer.

Prayer: Father, restore us, and may your face shine on us. Restore us and clear the ground for your root to fill the land of our hearts. Amen
