Day Four: Daddy's Song

If you'd like to share your progress in the New Testament this week, I'd love to hear from you!

Central Themes taken from the ESV Seek and Find Bible

1 Thessalonians - Jesus will come again; suffering for Christ is part of the Christian life; ministers of the gospel must labor diligently in love; those who reject the gospel will be judged; believers will be resurrected to glory; Christians must pursue holiness.
2 Thessalonians - When Jesus returns God will show wrath to unbelievers and show His glory to believers; before Jesus returns there will be a time of rebellion and the 'man of lawlessness' will appear; Christians are called to faithful, holy living; idleness is rebuked.
1 Timothy - False teaching must be resisted and sound doctrine promoted; the gospel leads to authentic godliness; prayer should be ongoing and for all people; elders and deacons must meet certain requirements; relationships among believers should be gospel-centered; believers are called to exercise faithfulness in ministry. 
2 Timothy - Suffering is a normal part of the Christian life; Christians are to depend on God's power and keep trusting God through suffering; the good news of the gospel is our reason for enduring; Scripture is God's very Word to His people; false teaching must be firmly resisted.

In two parts, I've got Daddy's Song by Dennis Jernigan...
