Series: 2 Thessalonians
There’s been a lot of conversations lately about safety. I think it’s obvious that safety is a top concern for most human beings, and in some ways understandably so. Life is valuable, being wise and diligent to protect and preserve it within itself is not a bad thing. But as Christians, we should ask ourselves, “what is true safety in this life?”
A time is coming when those who are afflicted for the sake of Christ will be comforted, and those who trouble the church will be afflicted by God. Now is the time to find peace with God through His Son before He returns to judge the world in righteousness.
We often think that God and His justice have abandoned us when we suffer for His name or experience tribulations in this life. Paul reminds us that God has not forsaken us but is actually preparing us for His return and everlasting kingdom.
