Worthy of His calling!
Scripture reading for September 19th: 2nd Thessalonians 1, Psalm 28, Proverbs 3
Key Scriptures: 2nd Thessalonians 1:9-12 “They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His might, when He comes on that day to be glorified in His saints, and to be marveled at among all who have believed, because our testimony to you was believed. To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of His calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by His power, so that the Name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Paul was clear concerning the events of the last days. He told the Thessalonians that the wicked, those who don’t know God and have rejected the Gospel of Jesus Christ, would suffer eternal punishment. The will be eternally separated from God’s glorious presence. But the righteous would be glorified as they had glorified the Name of Jesus through good works done in faith and the power of the Holy Spirit. Praise Jesus for His glorious Gospel!
Faith Confession: I believe in the salvation of the righteous, those who have confessed their sins and trusted in Jesus Christ to save them. My faith in Jesus motivates me to live a life of faith doing good works that God has prepared for me. To God be all glory!
Proverbs 3:3-4 “Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.”
