Learn and Apply the Principles

Paul gives a warning to the Thessalonians regarding Christ’s return in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12. He tells them not to be deceived by those who assert that the day of the Lord has already come (v. 2). No one knows the time or place of His return but when He does, the evil one will be destroyed.

The Holy Spirit restrains evil in the world but some day evil will be removed. Then there will be happenings and attitudes that will precede Christ’s return. There will be rebellion and the antichrist will be revealed to exalt himself over everything.

In the meantime, believers should be prepared always and do all that can be done to spread the Good News. Every believer has the responsibility to not only believe the truth but to stand fast during opposition.

Believers should not only hear the Word but live out the Word. Let us cheer up and inspire each other with examples of how God works, the beauty of His creation, and help all people love the truth.

This day with You Lord, we pray for the ability to highlight the good that Your people do and the kind acts they demonstrate. We pray to learn and apply the principles You give us in the Bible. We ask that You search inside our soul and clear out what shouldn’t be there. Lord, we are cheerful today because we know that You are already victorious. In Jesus name. Amen.
