II Thessalonians 2:13-17
Living right= Holiness
Staying right- Perseverance
Most of us are ready to give up far too soon.
1. Remember that you are a work in progress. (vs. 13)
sanctify means to “make holy”
God isn't finished with you yet.
2. Rely on the teachings of the Bible to get you through. (vs. 15)
Exhortations to persevere: Proverbs 24:16; Galatians 6:9; mark 13:13; Philippians 3:13-14
3. Beat the blues by doing good. (vs. 16-17)
Inactivity only makes things worse.
If you're tempted to give up, try this instead. Help someone else.
4. P. Pray
