In his letter to the Thessalonians, Paul commended these saints for their faith, love and hope.
Concerning their faith they had turned to God from idols.
Concerning their labor of love, they were serving the living and true God.
Concerning hope, they were waiting for Jesus from heaven whom God had raised from the dead.
Now these Thessalonians waited because they knew something about Jesus.
Something that many believers today overlook.
They knew Jesus as the one who would deliver them from the wrath to come.
That’s why they looked forward to his return.
That’s why hope was the anchor for their souls.
Well here’s the good news.
Jesus is the one who delivers you from the wrath to come.
This is your hope in Christ as well.
