“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17;3:5

TODAY’S WORD…

.

May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself

and God our Father, who loved us

and in His grace gave us unfailing courage and a firm hope,

encourage you and strengthen you

to always do and say what is good.

.

May the Lord lead you into a greater understanding of God’s love

and the endurance that is given by Christ.

.

– 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17;3:5 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

The journey to the goal of salvation

involves cooperation between God’s grace and man’s freedom.

Man needs the help of the "firm hope" which comes

from recognising that He – Jesus Christ – is a son of God.

.

Jesus inspiring us with hope,

and the Spirit fills our hearts with consolation

and at the same time encourages us to put our faith into practice in daily life

"to always do and say what is good."

.

Love and endurance are interconnected and complement each other.

They are two Christian virtues which make us resemble God:

"Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.

And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us,

a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." (Eph 5:1-2)

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord Jesus, fill me with courage, enduring strength and determination

to never take my eyes off You wherever You take me.
