October 25 II Thessalonians 1 Judgment at Christ's coming
Paul is trying to be encouraging in that he says those who have afflicted the church will be judged. There was a time when I thought that was just great. Not so much any more. I accept that each will receive according to their choices and deeds. But I find no joy in the destruction of anyone, even the pagans who reject Christ. I also have a bit of an issue with Paul saying to be worthy. As far as I can tell, all that's needed to be worthy is to believe and accept Christ. If there's something more then I'm afraid I won't make it. Doubt anyone else will either. It is an encouragement knowing that I have an eternity with God. Not that His enemies will be destroyed.
