Living to Please God — Part 8
2 Thessalonians 1:1-12
We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith
is growing more and more.  2 Thes. 1:3a NIV

2.  Relentlessness ___________________________________________________________
Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the
persecutions and trials you are enduring. 2 Thes. 1:4 NIV
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not 
give up. Gal. 6:9
3.  Relief _____________________________________________________________________
God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are
troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in
blazing fire with his powerful angels.  2 Thes. 1:6-7 NIV
 4.  Resolve ___________________________________________________________________
With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling,
and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every
deed prompted by faith. We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in
you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
