And here we have my verse that I have on my blog!
I find it interesting that this letter includes comments on how we will be taken to heaven. It doesn’t seem like a huge issue to me for newer believers, but it appropriately gives us reason to continue to build each other up and strive to live for Christ in all moments. When we have eternity in mind, we look at the present things in a different light. It makes more sense to persevere through persecution, to serve Christ in all aspects possible, and to encourage others to continue on in faith. It’s also something I’ve been trying to do more of lately.
