Just As It Did with You

Re:Verse passage – 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5 (day five)

“Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you;”

Paul is asking these believers to pray for the gospel to grow God’s Kingdom in strength and number in the days ahead. To guide their prayers, He reminds them of how that had happened in them and to them.  The gospel had a distinctive intensity and energy. They witnessed it. Experienced it. Believed it.

This Monday begins Youth Camp for our students and their leaders. A week that has been near and dear to my heart for decades. Those of us that have attended Camp before- remember how personal and powerful the gospel was?  Preaching. Worship. Bible Study. Fellowship. Salvation. Conviction. Repentance. Rededication. Surrender to ministry. Call to deeper faith.

As you remember your camp experiences, will you join me in praying for the students and sponsors from FBCSA in the days ahead? “That the word of God would spread and be glorified just as it did with you.”
