Bible Passage: 2 Thessalonians 1:6-12
Part 2 of Living in the Hope of Glory: The Message of 2 Thessalonians – No one likes to be treated unjustly, but Jesus warned his followers to expect just that. “If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also,” he said (John 15:20). How are we to stand up to such mistreatment? By remembering that “God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled.” This principle of divine retribution and reward holds the key to an enduring faith in the face of unjust treatment.
