Isn’t it nice to know we are loved, even if we feel unloved?
Isn’t it nice to know we can be encouraged, even if we feel discouraged?
Isn’t it nice to know we can be hopeful, even if we feel hopeless?
Because “Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father has loved us and given us eternal encouragement and good hope by grace.” (2 Thessalonians 2:16)
Did you catch that?
Jesus Christ [Himself]! and God our [Father]!
has given us not just encouragement, but [eternal] encouragement.
has given us [hope]!
So live this weekend full of love, encouragement and hope because [spoiler alert] God has already given them to us!! Don’t keep them to yourself.
Be [hope] for someone.
And may God continue to “encourage your hearts and strengthen you in [every] good work and word” this weekend. (2 Thessalonians 2:17)
May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal encouragement and good hope by grace, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good work and word. // 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
