Daily Meeting Place
Encouragement during Persecution
Today's Passage: 2 Thessalonians 1:3-12
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Invite God to join you in your reading. Ask Him for wisdom.
If there is anything in your spirit hindering you, confess it now.
He knows it. You are forgiven.
Ask Him to help you embrace that truth to live it out.
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you, Omnipotent God for insight.

3. Dear brothers and sisters, we can't help but thank God for you, because your faith is flourishing and your love for one another is growing.
4. We proudly tell God's other churches about your endurance and faithfulness in all the persecutions and hardships you are suffering.
5. And God will use this persecution to show his justice and to make you worthy of his Kingdom, for which you are suffering.
6. In his justice he will pay back those who persecute you.
7. And God will provide rest for you who are being persecuted and also for us when the Lord Jesus appears from heaven. He will come with his mighty angels,
8. in flaming fire, bringing judgment on those who don't know God and on those who refuse to obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus.
9. They will be punished and eternal destruction, forever separated from the Lord and from his glorious power.
10. When he comes on that day, he will receive glory from his holy people — praise from all who believe. And this includes you, for you believed what we told you about him.
11. So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do.
12. Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.
