Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue in the book of 1st Thessalonians with Chapter 3 and in our text we see Paul encouraged by the good report of Timothy as this Church stood strong in the times of persecution as the body kept doing the will of the Father. In making application we see the Church will come under persecution again and the key is for the Body to stand strong in the Word and Spirit of the Lord as He will give us victory in the end. How about you? Will you stand when hard times come your way? Let us learn from our text today and the reminder of the Church in Thessalonica to stand strong in the Lord in times of persecution for the Lord will deliver us in the end.
