Believers wait for the Day of the Lord.
You know how it will come.
As a Thief in the night.
While others say Peace and Safety!
Appreciate you know this.
The Light of Christ will overtake the darkness of this world.
And that Light already shines.
If you’re his.
Be attentive and clearheaded.
Abide in faith, hope, and love.
Which lead to redemption.
But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction, and that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work.
Live in peace with one another.
We urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone. See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people.
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Do not quench the Spirit; do not despise prophetic utterances. But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil.
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass. 1 Thess 5:12-24
Appraise what it is that you appreciate.
Are you focused on the right things?
Do you highly esteem Christ’s belongings?
Especially those who effort diligently toward your care.
May you always keep the virtuous things they do in your heart.
And love them because they watch over your souls.
Appreciate this week.
