2 Thessalonians 1
Christians are called to live a life glorifying to God. Sometimes, Christians assume that the Christian life is going to be easy. This idea is very incorrect because 2 Thessalonians chapter 1 clearly speaks of how Paul, Silvanus and Timothy endured hardships during their walk with God. They endured persecution for the cause of Christ.
Application: Don’t expect the Christian life to be easy, and painless. God will allow trials and hardships to occur to test our faith and dependence on God.
