LIVE LIKE JESUS IS COMING BACK TODAY!!! BECAUSE HIS WRATH IS COMING!!!
1 THESSALONIANS 1: 8-10
8The Lord’s message rang out from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia your faith in God has become known everywhere. Therefore we do not need to say anything about it, 9for they themselves report what kind of reception you gave us. They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, 10and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.
1: 9-10 We should respond to the gospel as the Thessalonians did: Turn to God, serve God, and wait for the return of his Son, Jesus Christ, from heaven. We should turn from sin to God because a relationship with Christ brings joy and purpose and because we know that Christ is coming again to judge the earth. We should be fervent in our service because we have little time to impact the world before Christ returns. We should be prepared for Christ to return because we don’t know when he will come.
1: 10 Paul emphasized Christ’s second coming throughout this letter. Since the Thessalonian church was being persecuted, Paul encouraged them to look forward to the deliverance that Christ would bring in the future. Our greatest and surest hope is in the return of Jesus, our great God and Savior; when Jesus returns, he will make all things right (Titus 2: 13). Our perspective on life remains incomplete without this hope. Just as surely as Christ was raised from the dead and ascended into heaven, he will return (Acts 1: 11).
