Passage: 2 Thessalonians 1:1-12

Preacher: Don Everts

Series: Steadfast

Category: Discipleship, Epistle



The perseverance demonstrated by this church in its struggle was an occasion for boasting, and served as an inspiration to other churches. That doesn’t mean it was easy. It isn’t easy to hold on when the wind is blowing. But we have a lot to place our confidence in. God promises to hold on to us when we can’t hold on to Him, and He promises to set all things right in the end. Old saying: “An oak tree is just an acorn that held its ground.” As you hold your ground in Jesus, you grow more and more rooted (v3) and your good desires and faith-prompted deeds bear fruit (v11).


Sometimes the hardest thing to do is stand still. The pressures of life and society, the pain and struggle we experience, can make us shaky in our faith. When you are holding on to the last rung of the ladder, be encouraged and stand firm. Christ is faithful to you and will help you remain steadfast in Him.
