Psalms: 134, 137


1 Thessalonians: As I write this, Advent Sunday is fast approaching. But even in this passage there is a sense and a longing generally characterized by Advent. Truth be told, this is the Second Advent just before the Second Coming. This book (letter) spends some time on this theme helping us to prepare for That Day. But here Paul is commending these Thessalonians on their faith from idols to the living God and since “imitation is the highest form of flattery” these Thessalonians were praised for that also because they were imitating Christ. (v. 6)

Gospel: Matthew 5:11-16

New Testament: 1 Thess. 1:1-10

Old Testament: Exodus 32:21-34
