Verse of the Day – 2 Thessalonians 1:3
When was the last time you found a new brother or sister in Christ and told that precious person everything they were doing right? Don’t you think that’s too long? Shouldn’t you let them know our joy and approval today? Let’s be more committed to encouraging and affirming others who are in Christ and giving thanks to God for them — especially new believers. Remember what the Father did for Jesus shortly after the Lord‘s baptism? The Father told the Son he loved him, claimed him as his Son, and found great delight in him (Luke 3:21-22). If Jesus needed this as he began his ministry, think how much more a new follower of Jesus needs it today!
