When Life Isn’t Peaches and Cream

We have all been at the place where living life hurts. When getting out of bed is a difficult chore, and hiding under the covers (literally) is a desire.

Whether you know someone going through such a time, or you are in the midst of a life battle, look at Paul’s words written to the Thessalonians:

For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

The gospel (Jesus’ death on our behalf) tells us that we are His, so that we might live for Him! This message is to encourage and build us up. Share it. Email it. Text it. Pint it. Proclaim it. Facebook “like” it. Retweet it. Remind yourself of it. Remind others of it. And make obeying God’s command to “encourage one another and build one another up” your task.
