Our culture is becoming increasingly hostile to the God and the church of Jesus Christ. Biblical truths are attacked in government and media. Our world is showing its 'true colors': It's bad, but there's good news, too. As salt and light, Christians point to a better way, and a better day!
In spiritual battles which lie ahead, Christians will confront the vacuum of truth in our relativistic world. Jesus said, You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free (John 8:32). The challenge before believers will be severe: Do I know the truth?
As he concludes his letter to the church in Thessalonica, Paul gives them practical advice. It's as good now as it was then. These gems of truth go to the very heart of our spiritual foundation and actions. The closer you look, the more you'll see.
