THANK GOD FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS BELEIVING IN THE TRUTH
TODAY I have a special prayer request for our prayer warriors, I have a Brother in CHRIST who has a family member struggling with alchohol addiction of many years. He needs prayers for strength to deal with this person and Gods power to break the bonds of alchohlism and bring him back to CHRIST. thank you for your prayers and support. RICHARD
2 THESSALONIANS 2:13
13But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.
2: 13 Paul consistently taught that salvation begins and ends with God. We can do nothing to be saved on our own merit— we must accept God’s gift of salvation (see the note on Ephesians 1: 4). There is no other way to receive forgiveness from sin. Paul was encouraging the Thessalonian believers by reminding them that they had been chosen by God from the beginning. Sanctification is the process of Christian growth through which the Holy Spirit makes us like Christ (Romans 8: 29). Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and be one who is being SANCTIFIED through our belief in the truth of JESUS CHRIST!!
