Today we read the third chapter of the Apostle Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians and one chapter of Isaiah.
1 Thessalonians 3 tells of Paul’s concern for their faith and he was encouraged by the report from Timothy. The chapter ends with a prayer that their love may increase.
Isaiah 50 continues elaborating about the Servant. The two last verses has meant much in my life: “ Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God. Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.”
