04/22 1 Thessalonians 2:1-2
You yourselves know, dear brothers and sisters, that our visit to you was not a failure. 2 You know how badly we had been treated at Philippi just before we came to you and how much we suffered there. Yet our God gave us the courage to declare his Good News to you boldly, even though we were surrounded by many who opposed us.
We can live our life boldly for the Lord. He is worthy of our temporal life and momentary death-Christ is the Lord and He is our Lord. Do not let the cares and worries of this life sidetrack you because the One we follow is greater than anything. He gives you His joy and His peace.
