A Live and Thriving Christian

2 Thessalonians 1:3

We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;

 

Throughout these two letters, I do not believe we see any reprimanding or correcting from Paul. This is an exemplary church. Now Paul says that he thinks God for the faith and love that these people have. It appears that both their faith and their love continue growing. 

So many times I have had moments that I remember and can rejoice in of how I had big faith or great love, but sadly those are more the exception not the rule. 

It appears that these Christians consistently had faith and love. It grew and abounded. 

As a Christian, we should have faith and love towards God and towards others, but it should be growing, not staying the same. May I deepen the roots of my faith in and towards God as well as my love for others. That’s an exemplary Christian!
