But, brothers and sisters, when we were orphaned by being separated from you for a short time (in person, not in thought), out of our intense longing we made every effort to see you. 1 Thessalonians 2:17

+ The gospel doesn’t merely change our minds, it reshapes our hearts and our lives in every way.

+ If you have a love for God then you will have a love for God’s people.

+ Isolation is the death of you.
For we wanted to come to you—certainly I, Paul, did, again and again—but Satan blocked our way…

so that no one would be unsettled by these trials. For you know quite well that we are destined for them.

+ Unsettled: shaken to the point of questioning

+ Destined: appointed/expected

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.
