The Christian life can have as many heartbreaks as hallelujahs. Circumstances confuse us. Sin frustrates us. Satan likes to inflict pain on God's children. Wouldn't it be great if we could go to heaven as soon as we become Christians and skip the confusion, frustration, and pain? Sadly it doesn't work like that; we have to learn to overcome this world while awaiting the Second Coming of Jesus. In 1-2 Thessalonians, we are equipped to do just that. Living & Longing for the Lord will guide you through Paul's letters to Thessalonica in hopes of helping you become more like Jesus until he returns.
