“for now we really live, if you stand firm in the Lord.”

Today’s devotion comes from 1 Thessalonians 3:1-10.  Here is a link to this Scripture –

I quote only the following verses.

“But now that Timothy has come to us from you, and has brought us good news of your faith and love, and that you always think kindly of us, longing to see us just as we also long to see you, for this reason, brethren, in all our distress and affliction we were comforted about you through your faith;  for now we really live, if you stand firm in the Lord.”  For what thanks can we render to God for you in return for all the joy with which we rejoice before our God on your account, as we night and day keep praying most earnestly that we may see your face, and may complete what is lacking in your faith?  1 Thessalonians 3:6-10. 


We are concerned and pray and pleased to hear when our family and friends are prospering financially and are in good health.

“Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.”  3 John 1:2.

But, let us be most concerned, most earnestly pray, and most pleased to hear that they stand firm in the Lord as shown by today’s Scripture.   

“I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth.”  3 John 1:4.
