1 Thessalonians 5:9-11
“For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”
Being children of God, we all belong to light and day and not night and darkness. We should always be different from other people, who do not know God, and so we should live our lives so that it reflects the acts of God.
Everyday, never forget to clothe yourself with the breastplate of love and faith. Let the hope of salvation be your helmet.
Keep in mind that, God has always appointed you and me to receive His salvation and distribute it to everyone around us. We all know that God came into this world, died for us and rose again. It is because He wanted us to live together with Him.
And so, encourage and comfort each other and let them turn their lives from darkness to light. Let them also enjoy God’s salvation, same as you do.
“The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.”
Everyone have their own expectation and ambition in life. Some of our plans succeed and some may not. But whatever happens in your life, you should never lose hope. Because hope is the essence of your success and the extinguisher of your failure.
More than you trust yourself, you should trust God. You should recall that, God is good to all those who put their hope in Him. God will do immeasurable things, more than what you would have asked for or could have imagined.
Apart from your efforts, seek God everyday and His salvation is at your doorsteps.
2 Corinthians 6:1-2
“As God’s co-workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain. For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.”
We cannot receive anytime help and support from everyone. Swift and immediate actions in everything, keeps our life stable. Time is very precious and if we do not act promptly, things turn around the opposite way.
When we have so many things which are difficult to deal with, we become disturbed. We cry out for help to everyone whom we know and when there is no support, we finally seek God.
But God says “Ask for help, I will hear you and I will save you”.
So never procrastinate what you have to do at the right time. Do not hesitate; Today is the time of salvation; Today is the time to receive God’s favor. God’s grace is always with you!
