Be Blessed!

In the middle of 1 Thess. there is a blessing.

11 Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for us to come to you. 12 May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you. 13 May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.

Paul didn't ask for God to bless them with material things nor did He ask God to make their life easier. He knew the former had already been taken care of and that the later wasn't Gods goal, but that life should be blameless and holy before easier. He focuses on agape love for each other and their relationship with God. He speaks to their heart about the condition of their heart.

So....

May God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit clear the way for us to see each other this Sunday, His day. May He increase your love for each other and everyone around you continually. My your heart be strengthen against the evil that tries to lead you astray so you will be found blameless and holy in Gods sight.
