An Exposé: Paul's Prayer for the Thesselonians

2 Thessalonians 3:5

One of our members, Peder Swanson, guest preaches for us.

In Paul's second letter to the Thessalonians Paul starts off by offering words of encouragement in the midst of persecution. He then offers hope in the resurrection of Christ and his second coming. He charges them to stand firm and requests that the Thessalonians pray for him. We pick up in 2 Thess. 3:5 where Paul says, 

May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.

What does it look like to allow God to direct your heart? Peder hopes that this verse would encourage you and remind you of the love that God has for you and how that love might shape your life.
