Want to read the Bible with me today? http://www.timhowey.com/2016/01/my-bible-reading-2016.html
First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read 1 Thessalonians 5.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical -- Paul, Silas, and Timothy urge the believers in the church at Thessalonica to love as children of God/light looking forward to Christ's return; then they give them a series of important directions regarding how to keep Christ at the center of our lives and relationships.
- Doctrinal -- Christ died for people so that "whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him." (See verse 10.)
- Inspirational -- God? Please give me wisdom when you want me to "Warn those that are unruly" as it says in verse 14, and when you don't.
