A restful spirit in the midst of heightened tensions

a restful spirit in the midst of heightened tensions

As many of you know I often benefit from the devotionals Rick Renner has written in his Sparkling Gems from the Greek, which draw out the fuller meaning of the Greek words used in the New Testament.

Like Rick I had never noticed the word ‘rest’ being used in 2 Thess. 1:7, in what is actually an extremely climactic context:

And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from Heaven with His mighty angels . . . (KJV). Or, as the Berean Literal Bible renders it, ‘and to you being oppressed, repose with us at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from Heaven, with His mighty angels’.

I think this short reflection will be a blessing!
