For what is our hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when he comes? Is it not you?...
We sent Timothy, who is our brother and co-worker in God’s service in spreading the gospel of Christ, to strengthen and encourage you in your faith.
+ Strengthen: Reinforce, to offer support
+ Encourage: to come along side with Spirit inspired words
+ Faith: trusting God in the midst of trials
- Times of plenty
- Times of pain
+ When hindered, take the long view not the short view.
