I Thessalonians 3:10 Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?
Paul loved these believers. He wanted desperately to help them grow in their faith. He wanted to see them. He also knew that they had much to learn. He wanted to strengthen their faith. He wanted to help them grow in the Lord.
He wanted to get through the basic course of discipleship and take it on to maturity. He wanted to help them understand the things that were causing them to doubt and be weak in the faith.
Once someone is saved we have so much more to do. We must keep them in the Word of God learning all that they can. We must teach them and keep them growing. Not only were we sent to make disciples but we were sent to teach them to observe all things that He has told us to do!
Take seriously the opportunity that we have to share the faith and grow our friends in the Lord.
