I read this passage of scripture today, and I thought of all my many friends in ministry (at Dare 2 Share, at Northern Hills, as missionaries around the world, in other churches, in worship and Bible training, and more). My prayer today is that you are all encouraged and refreshed by God’s word.
From II Thessalonians 2: 13 – 17 (From Paul, Silas and Timothy to the church of Thessalonian Christians)
Meanwhile, we’ve got our hands full continually thanking God for you, our good friends – so loved by God! …so, friends, take a firm stand, feet on the ground and head high. …may Jesus himself, and God, our Father, who reached out in love and surprised you with gifts of unending help and confidence, put a FRESH HEART in you, INVIGORATE your work, ENLIVEN your speech.
