Day 46 1 Thessalonians 5:8-11

“Product of Encouragement!”

“But let us who live in the light think clearly, protected by the body armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation.  For God decided to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out his anger on us.  He died for us so that we can live with him forever, whether we are dead or alive at the time of his return.  So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.”(1Thessalonians 5:8-11)
“But let us who live in the light think clearly, protected by the body armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the Hope of our salvation.” As we read in this body, we see three key words; Love, Faith and Hope. In Corinthians, Paul said out of these three, Love is the greatest. But let us not just push the other two to the side. Next to Love, we are called to Faith and Hope; because it is our Faith and Hope in Christ that has delivered us. “For God decided to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out his anger on us.” Mankind, who was once an enemy of the Lord, found salvation through Christ. It is hard not to really get an understanding of, “amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me,” Because it was by Grace that all man have been saved. From such an honor from the Lord, our hearts should be filled with Love, Faith and Hope.
“So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” Let us always remember that encouragement is a key with the things of Christ. It is not by works that we strive after these things, but the harvest that is produced from God’s Grace in our life. God so loved us that he calls us to watch after each other and If encouragement is an by produce, let it be use by all.
