Bible Challenge – 2 Thessalonians 2

December 23, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

“With all these things in mind, dear brothers and sisters, stand firm and keep a strong grip on the teaching we passed on to you both in prison and by letter.” v. 15

This is a simple reminder of the importance of knowing the truth about the things of God! We live in a day and age where words and situations are manipulated to justify actions and lifestyles.  It’s becoming the norm more and more.  As things get manipulated they get spun as the ‘new normal’ and beliefs of old are somewhat said to be outdated, or, even better yet, used against us in some form or another.

The Bible is clear that in the last days, believers won’t have it easy.  Our faith and beliefs will be tested, possibly even to the point of death.  But the truth that we hold, will last forever, and one day it will bring us into the presence of God because of our faith in Jesus Christ.

The challenge for you and I is to know the Truth so well that we don’t get caught in the manipulation of it.  But it doesn’t stop there! It also means that we need to Live the Truth, and Share the Truth with the people around us so they to might be able to share in the victory we have in the Gospel and be set free from the things of this world! This is the essence of the Gospel and the mission Jesus gave all of us in Matthew 28.

“Jesus came and told his disciples, ‘I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,[b] baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’” Matthew 28:18-20 (NLT)

Today, if you were given a test on how well you know scripture, how do you think you would do? Would you be embarrassed by what you don’t know? I want to encourage you to spend some extra time reading and praying, so you can know the Truth found in Scripture and live it out in your daily life!
