HAVING THE JOY OF SEEING OTHERS MATURE IN CHRIST!!
1 THESSALONIANS 3:9-10
9How can we thank God enough for you in return for all the joy we have in the presence of our God because of you? 10Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you again and supply what is lacking in your faith.
3: 9-10 Seeing another person come to faith in Christ and mature in that faith brings great joy to a Christian. Paul experienced this joy countless times. He thanked God for those who had come to know Christ and for their strong faith. He also prayed for their continued growth. If new Christians have brought you joy, thank God for them and support them as they continue to grow in the faith. Likewise, have you benefited from the ministry of others? Has someone’s guidance and faithfulness stimulated you to grow in Christ? Consider how you may bring that person some word of encouragement or some thoughtful gift. Let that important person know that you have followed his or her example by being faithful to Christ.Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure you can have the JOY of seeing MANY others mature in CHRIST because of the example you set by living your life for JESUS CHRIST!!!
