November 15 - Thank Him For Growth.
2 Thessalonians 1:3
“We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;”
Paul, Silas and Timothy pinned a second letter to the church of Thessalonica, and they began once again by thanking God for the people.
But this time, they specifically noticed their spiritual growth.
“because that your faith groweth exceedingly”
Is your faith growing?
Or perhaps you have found yourself in somewhat of a spiritual rut lately.
We’ve all been there.
The best way to get out of a rut, and continue to grow is to drown yourself with the Word of God.
1 Peter 2:2-3
“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.”
A taste of His Word can change our perspective and our position.
2 Peter 3:18
“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”
They also noticed growth in the people’s love for one another.
“and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;”
Are you investing in others?
That is a true sign of love toward one another.
“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
It is so easy to only be focused on ourselves and what we need that we miss out on being a blessing to others.
“Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.”
Thank Him today for those who have invested in you so that you could grow.
Where would you be if someone had not shown the love of Christ to you?
May remembering them cause you to desire to invest in someone else.
Ezekiel 9-10 | Psalm 83-85
