God’s love, God’s call, God’s glory

2 Thessalonians 2:13-3:5

God’s love, God’s call, God’s glory (2 Thessalonians 2:13-14)

“the traditions” (2 Thessalonians 2:15): Who is behind the tradition? If it’s the Lord, we have something that’s more than a tradition. Who does the message come from?  – It comes from the Lord. That’s why we must “stand firm.”

Eternal encouragement for here-and-now (2 Thessalonians 3:16-17).

Contrast “not all have faith” (2 Thessalonians 3:2) and “the Lord is faithful” (2 Thessalonians 3:3).

“He will strengthen and guard you from the evil one” (2 Thessalonians 3:4) – “The Lord bless you and keep you” (Numbers 6:24).

“May the Lord direct your hearts to God’s love and Christ’s endurance” (2 Thessalonians 3:3). When the Lord is at work, He becomes the chief focus of our attention. It’s His love and endurance that inspire us to keep on loving Him and serving Him.
