This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are also suffering—since indeed God considers it just to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to grant relief to you who are afflicted as well…
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with…
And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe. “Proof of the pudding.” The…
You are witnesses, and so is God, of how holy, righteous and blameless we were among you who believed. Paul is not referring to an audience whom he should desire to preach words to tickle their ears, (2 Tim. 4:3), but to an audience who is called to join with…
For our appeal does not spring from error or impurity or any attempt to deceive, but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts. So difficult to remember that…
This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise gives me life. Yes, there is life in Your promises for they are sure, yea and amen. I need only to turn to Your Word in my affliction for there they are. Jewels ready for the taking, ripe grain for…
And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not a…
Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your…
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. This had to be my mother's favorite verse; I'm sure for I heard it so often. However it was usually the full-blown version in Exodus 20:12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in…
and I trust in the Lord that shortly I myself will come also. How often, in any given day, do I ignore the clearly stated instruction in James 4:15 'Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.”?' It is not only…
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. Do…
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being…
Let your steadfast love come to me, O LORD, your salvation according to your promise; then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me, for I trust in your word. The one who taunts me is the Father of Lies. He and his minions are tireless agents of…
Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel,…
Bondservants, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ, not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not…
