Are you troubled?

To read the Bible in a year, read Second Thessalonians 1 on October 18, In the year of our Lord Christ 2019

By Don Ruhl

If people trouble you for your faith, rest assured that the Lord Jesus Christ knows about it and He will repay them for what they have done to you, but He will give you something wonderful:

…and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

– 2 Thessalonians 1.7–8

He will give you rest when He returns, but this time in flaming fire to render vengeance on those who do not know God and who do not obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. Just be patient and know that everything is in His hands.

Questions:

  • Are you tempted to take personal vengeance?
  • Do you believe that the Lord will punish those who persecute you?
