2 Thessalonians 3
After a request for prayer on his behalf (3:1-5), Paul admonishes those among the Thessalonians who have become idle and are living off the resources of others rather than earning their own provisions (3:6-15). The doctrine of the return of Christ should stimulate responsible living rather than indolence. This brief epistle concludes with a benediction and greetings (3:16-18).
The theme of 2 Thessalonians is comfort and correction in view of practical and doctrinal obstacles to spiritual maturity. Those who followed Jesus in Thessalonica needed to know that their persecution would be vindicated at the return of Christ, that the day of the Lord was yet future, and that they should continue to be diligent rather than undisciplined while they awaited the coming of the Lord.
