1 Thessalonians 3:2a-3a We sent him to strengthen you, to encourage you in your faith, and to keep you from being shaken by the troubles you were going through.
I remind that we need to strengthen each other, encourage each other in our faith, and keep each other from being shaken by our troubles. Being a part of a faith community is important! But we can't just be passive members, we must be the hands and feet of Jesus to each other.
12 And may the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow and overflow, just as our love for you overflows. 13 May he, as a result, make your hearts strong, blameless, and holy as you stand before God our Father when our Lord Jesus comes again with all his holy people. Amen.
I want a strong heart, to be blameless and holy! Notice the phrase in there "as a result". As a result of what? As a result of love. When our love for others overflows with the love of God, not only do others benefit from the love we show them, but so do we.
