Are You Troubled? Find Rest.

’And to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels.”

2 Thessalonians 1:7

Ponder This

Are you troubled today? Listen: “And you who are troubled rest with us.” That is, be at ease. Quit your worry. It is not over yet. The story of our age remains unfinished. If you are troubled, you need not be disturbed. “Rest with us.”

You say, “Pastor, it’s so dark.” Yes, it’s gloriously dark, because the darkest hour of the night is just before sunrise. Our hope is not in politics, sociology, or science. The only sure hope for our world is the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. And when He’s revealed, He will be revealed as the Lord Jesus. Today He is despised, rejected, mocked. But He is coming as Lord, to be glorified and admired.

Practice This

If you are unsaved, if you’re not one of His saints, His coming will strike stark terror in your heart. But if you are saved, you’re going to say, “Glory to the Lamb. Isn’t He beautiful?” Say this aloud if you can say it and mean it: “Lord Jesus.” The Lord Jesus is coming.
