“May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.” – 2 Thessalonians 3:5
How are you with directions? I like to think I’m good with them, but my wife might have a slightly different assessment of my navigational abilities. Honestly, if you twisted my arm, I’d have to begrudgingly admit that she’s right. As much as I can hold my own with a GPS, the truth is that I can get pretty turned around without it. Ok, let me stop hedging and come right out with it. What I’m trying to say is that I’m “directionally challenged.” Wow, there it is. I said it out loud. I wrote it here in my pastor’s note for the world to read. I feel better and worse at the same time! (Ha!)
The good news, however, is that the Lord gave me a wife who is quite good at it. And as I’ve sought to humble myself, we’ve become a strong traveling pair. Typically, I like to drive while she sets the GPS, relays the turns, and makes sure I actually go the way I’ve been directed. As we work together, we’ve come to enjoy our times in the car and typically reach our destination without much drama. The bottom line is that the trip always goes better when I follow her clear directions.
Speaking of clear directions, this week we will be studying 2 Thessalonians 2:13-3:5 to gain clarity regarding the gospel’s work in our lives. As you take time to look over the text, be sure to consider the clear direction Paul is giving the Thessalonians and us. And as we come together this Sunday, “May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.”
Be sure to listen to the worship set as you prepare for worship.
Love you, Church.
