TEXT: 2 Thessalonians 2:13-17(NKJV)
DAILY FOUNTAIN DEVOTIONAL 11TH NOVEMBER 2022 STUDY
Paul was specific in his thanksgiving to God for the Thessalonians. God loved them and chose the Thessalonians as the first fruits to be saved. God loved and chose them for salvation (2 Thess. 2:13b, c.f. 1Thess 1:6). In his sovereignty, God chooses those He loves and saves them.
In light of God’s work in saving them, Paul calls them to stand firm and hold to the traditions that were taught by Paul and his companions (2 Thess. 2:15). This is in contrast to 2 Thessalonians 2:2, where false teaching causes them to be shaken and alarmed; truth is worth standing firm on! Our hope in God’s promise to save and glorify us with Christ is sure because God keeps His promises.
This hope is certain, sure and true. We can rest on it – this comfort and hope comes through grace. We rest on God’s grace towards undeserving sinners. We have comfort even in the attack of lawlessness because God’s grace is behind our salvation. We have sure hope of God completing His salvation because His grace is behind it.
If you wondered how you are going to stand firm all the way, remember that it is by God’s grace; we have no hope in ourselves. Don’t think of what you are going to do to stand firm but who are you depending on that you might do so. He will hold us fast.
PRAYER: Lord God, please keep me firm in faith until Christ returns in Jesus name Amen.
