Today we read the second chapter of 1 Thessalonians and one chapter of Isaiah.
1 Thessalonians 2. Paul defends his motives and his conduct, they were all pure. Then he gives thanks to God for the conversion of the Thessalonians and mentions his longing to see them.
Isaiah 49. A chapter on the servant. Is it Israel or is it Jesus? Isaiah indicates it is both, and “a light to the Gentiles.” Read it and contemplate.
