Passage: 2 Thessalonians 1:3-4

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

That Paul says he has a holy obligation to God in these verses ought to cause us to think for ourselves – am I under any such obligation to God? Yes, all believers are obligated to thank God. Why? To answer this, we must first answer why Paul feels an obligation of gratitude to God as he thinks of the Thessalonians. Why does Paul sense a duty to give thanks to God?

  1. For God’s Grace in General
  2. For God’s Spiritual Work in Believers
  3. For God’s Answering Prayer
