The Big Read – Daily Read
1 Thessalonians 1:9-10
v9: Those who have responded rightly to the gospel have abandoned their idolatry. They have “turned from their idols and abandoned all the false worship they had been brought up in.” They have also given “themselves to God, to the living and true God, and devoted themselves to his service.”
v10: We believe that Jesus will come again and we believe that “his coming will bring us joy.” We can be certain that He will return “because God has raised him from the dead, which is full assurance to all that he will come for judgment.” We wait with excitement for Him to come again, because “he will bring salvation with him, full and final deliverance from sin, death, and hell, from the wrath that is still to come.”
