We have been studying the book of 1 Thessalonians which is a book instructing these Christians to live in the light of eternity. Having an eternal view of our lives radically changes how we live in this world. We have noted in our study that these Christians in Thessalonica are going through great trials for their faith in Jesus. In this section of Paul’s letter, 1 Thessalonians 2:13-3:13, this suffering is going to be addressed in greater detail. Paul’s concern is that these Christians would not be moved by the afflictions they are experiencing (3:3). What we are going to see is how Paul encourages these Christians so that they will not be moved by the afflictions they are experiencing. By doing so we are going to learn for ourselves how we will also not be moved by the afflictions we endure.
