In today’s (chronological) Bible reading… 2Thessalonians 1-3… we see Paul address more struggles and more theological concerns.

This letter was written to the Christians in Thessalonica a few months after Paul had written the first letter.  His intent was, again, to encourage the church to stand strong in the face of persecution.

Some of the people thought the “Day of the Lord” had already come… or was due to happen just any day.  So, Paul spent much his writing dealing with this… and how they were to keep working for Jesus until He comes back – no matter how long that might take.

And what Paul wrote to them concerning the 2nd Coming of Christ, he would also write to you and me!
