Have you ever been bad-mouthed? That’s when someone talks bad about you without them even really knowing you. How about persecuted? We Christians here in America don’t suffer the persecution that Christians in other countries suffer. Here it’s a little bit different. We could call what’s going on in California persecution. There churches are being fined and worse because all they want to do is gather in person against the governor’s COVID-19 mandate.
In the 2nd chapter of 1 Thessalonians, Paul writes to the church that was dealing with persecution as well as people bad-mouthing Paul. He was comforting them. Let’s read through this chapter then go over 12 points that stand out….
If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then…
Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.
Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly…
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
Jesus is coming back soon! Are you ready?
