“What if we believed Jesus could return at any moment?”
The Christian life can have as many heartbreaks as “Hallelujahs.” Circumstances confuse us. Sin frustrates us. The devil likes to inflict pain on God’s children. Wouldn’t it be great if we could go to heaven as soon as we become Christians and skip the confusion, frustration, and pain? Sadly, it doesn’t work like that; we have to learn to overcome this world while awaiting the Second Coming. In 1–2 Thessalonians, we are equipped to do just that. Living & Longing for the Lord will guide you through Paul’s letters to Thessalonica in hopes of helping you become more like Jesus until he returns.
