The Thessalonians were facing persecution. Fear was beginning to take hold. They were spiritually frozen and paralyzed. They stopped following Jesus with the joy and passion that had marked their earlier faith. The message from God for this young church is one we still need to hear today. Don’t be afraid. Don’t panic. Don’t freeze. Instead, be calm and press on.
