L and ii thessalonians
week 5:thursday

read: ii thessalonians 2:9-12
soap: ii thessalonians 2:10-
“and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.” -
paul explains to the believers in thessalonica that the “lawless one” or anti-christ will perform signs and wonders that deceive many unbelievers. stubborn hearts are subject to sin’s strong delusion, and god will not stop a sinner’s free will from choosing a counterfeit christ. those who have rejected the true savior will receive this false messiah and follow him straight to their destruction.-
if you have a family member or friend who has not yielded to christ, the thought of their going to hell is heartbreaking. but, god is patient, and his desire is for no one to perish without christ. we still have time to witness to our loved ones and pray for their hearts to soften to the truth. if you have never asked jesus to forgive you of your sins, you can pray today and have total peace with god. confess you are a sinner and tell jesus you want to follow him as your savior.-
lord, open the eyes of my loved ones to the truth. help them to see how jesus died on the cross to save them from their sins. give me an opportunity to share the good news with them in a clear way this week. may your truth come alive in their hearts. jesus, forgive me of all my sin.  i surrender my all to you as my savior. amen.-

“and we know that for those who love god all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose”
roman 8:28
after experiencing sufferings, we are often able to see life with a better perspective. so, don’t be quick to question the lord’s providence and don’t be hurry to complain to god.

#daily #devotional the word for today!

#topic: let your words encourage others

ephesians 4:29 (kjv) let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

# dear friend, do you know that every word you speak into the life of someone matters. sometimes what you say may seem insignificant to you, but to someone else those words can be life changing. why speaking demoralising words when you can speak encouraging words?. in our text today, we discovered that god wants us to use our words to lift someone’s spirit and not to break them. to edify them and not to do otherwise. when you speak words of encouragement, vision and life over them, you are depositing seeds that will last throughout eternity. it’s especially important to speak vision into the life of people around us and also into the life of our children. as a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher or friend, the people in your life need to hear on a regular basis that they can do something great with their lives. stop discouraging them, stop saying negative things into their life, but rather encourage them with your words, i mean speak good words/god's word such that produces great result.
dear parents, your words carry incredible weight. that’s why you should never say anything that put’s your child down. don’t ever say, “you’re slow, clumsy or dumb. "you are a nonentity” those words are seeds that can take root and affect the child many years later.

# from today, beging to speak vision, health, lifting and such good words over yourself and over the people in your life.
# call out the seeds of greatness in others and stir up the gift of god inside. tell them they can make it, tell them they can be the best.
and of course, speak life, speak hope, speak vision and speak better things over the people you encounter each and every day!

father, i choose to encourage others with good words from today. help me to see the people in my life the way you see them. let me see the potential you have placed in them so that i can call forth

"just how far are we to 'strive for peace'? further than most of us want to go; further than we frequently feel we should go when our passions are engaged in conflict with someone.⠀

the bible calls jesus the 'prince of peace' (isaiah 9:6). and the prince of peace, the son of god, said, 'blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of god' (matt 5:9). how far did the prince of peace, the son of god, go to make peace with us? to the death. jesus made peace between us and god 'by the blood of his cross' (col 1:20). when we were still sinners (romans 5:8).⠀

how far should the sons of god go to make peace? to the death. what does that mean? it depends on the nature of the conflict. but at the very least it means, 'put to death therefore what is earthly in you' (col 3:5). it means, 'love one another with brotherly affection' and 'outdo one another in showing honor' (romans 12:10). it means, 'bless those who persecute you,' 'live in harmony with one another,' 'never be wise in your own sight,' never 'repay . . . evil for evil,' & 'do what is honorable in the sight of all,' never seeking revenge when wronged, treating our enemies with graciousness and compassion & so far as it depends on us, living 'peaceably with all' (romans 12:14–21).⠀

this is what it looks like to 'strive for peace with everyone' (hebrews 12:14). most of the time, when a conflict is brewing, we should assume it is avoidable & do everything to pursue peace. we should assume the best of the other(s) & assume we are misunderstanding something or being tempted by warring passions. we should not enter into conflict as such until we have clear confirmation that it is unavoidable in the biblical sense. and even then, we speak the appropriate truth in the appropriate form of love, whether it be tough or tender (eph 4:15).⠀

this is hard. like all forms spiritual endurance & warfare, we must strive. we must die. but this kind of dying to make peace is blessed. it’s what sons of god do. and god’s reward to his peace-making sons will be out-of-this-world wonderful."

The apostle paul is so genuine in his writing. he cares deeply for the colossians, and even though he is separated from them by distance, he still holds them in his heart. not only that, he rejoices knowing they are strengthening their faith! we need friends like paul in our lives! despite not being geographically close, your friend should still hold your best interest at heart. and they should be proud and excited that you are continuing to grow closer to god. today, be like paul and love your friends even though you may be far away, and be joyful for their walk of faith. in jesus name, amen!

Day 142: i've spent the past two days taking part in exciting new adventures that god has blessed me/us with. god is continuing to bless us as we look to him in the midst of our trials. we are loved by jesus. that's all that matters.

leading a reproducing lifestyle: how to compel people to come to meetings where they can encounter jesus!
here it is in one phrase: give grace!
2 corinthians 5:14
for the love of christ compels us...
giving grace is giving unmerited favors. there is something about demonstrating the love of christ by giving people more than they deserve that is compelling!
whether it is a coworker or a neighbor, keep going beyond what is deserved and into undeserved favor territory with them. keep giving grace. after a while you will see how easy it is to bring them to come meet with jesus in your meetings. they may not know him and his love, but they know you and have experienced his love through you!
ephesians 4:29
let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.
