Re:Verse passage – 1 Thessalonians 1:2-6 (day three)
“…constantly bearing in mind your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope.”
Physicists have observed a state of existence called quantum entanglement, in which determining a particular characteristic of one particle will tell the observer specific details about the corresponding characteristic of another particle without the observer’s ever having to examine that other particle. The two particles are said to be “entangled,” even if they are light-years apart. All phenomena in the material realm have their antecedents in the spiritual realm. Human beings have a will because God has a will. Human beings draw life from community because life comes only from God, who exists in eternal community. And if hope sprang up in Paul continually, if love enfolded him constantly, if faith buoyed him incessantly, it’s because dear friends in Christ entangled their lives with his.
