Established

“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.” (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17)

I suspect those in static mode from this national crisis have a great desire to be working again. As that is not the case for so many, and as we are not able to physically engage with others in work or relationships, we run the risk of becoming idle. The question is how, in a time where “life” is on hold, do we stay actively connected?

There are several key words in our passage that speak to this. First of all, “Lord” requires our allegiance, which means we have a responsibility to live an active life, serving him. “Father” suggests we have a creator that deeply cares for us and so what we do for him comes from a love for him not just to appease him. As we serve and love, we are encouraged in a “good hope” that keeps our minds focused on Kingdom blessings, such as “comfort and grace.”

The inability to be involved in tangible ways at the moment, does not mean we become idle. As stated above, hope, comfort and grace establishes our hearts for “every good work and word.” Just like It is essential in a strategy game to establish a foothold or stronghold we also have a Lord and God that establishes hearts for the advancement of his Kingdom which means he prepares us for “every good work and word.”

Question: Have you found yourself becoming idle?

Challenge: Memorize 2 Corinthians 9:8.

Prayer: Father, please show me how I can be effective during this down time.
