1 Thessalonians 3
Paul explains that he was concerned after his departure from the Thessalonians about their spiritual condition, and he expresses his profound encouragement to hear that their faith and love were continuing to grow (2:17-3:10). Before moving on to a series of exhortations and instructions, Paul pauses to pray for their continued spiritual progress (3:11-13).
This personal letter has much in common with 2 Corinthians; in both letters Paul defends his message and character in view of slanderous opposition. In his defense of his ministry, Paul reveals his motives, his compassion, his dedication, his tenderness, and his concern for the people God had called him to serve.
READING of 1 THESSALONIANS 3
Lord, I ask that You would cause us to increase and abound in our love for one another, so that You may establish our hearts without blame in holiness before You as the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.
