Paul wrote to troubled Thessalonians, “And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven … When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe” (2 Thessalonians 1:7, 10).
As in the troublesome days when Paul wrote these words, we are living in perilous times also. There is the threat of terrorism, political unrest, and sin abounding on every hand.
But, Paul extends an invitation to those who are troubled to “REST with us.” Paul was resting, so why can’t we rest with him? How can we rest with world conditions getting worse and worse? By looking forward to the day when the Jesus shall come and put an end to our troubles.
Until then, rest in this assurance—When Jesus comes He will make everything that is wrong in the world, right! This truth should bring rest to any troubled believer.
