Dean Elliott teaches from 2 Thessalonians 2:13-17. God’s kingdom can be likened to a train that is barreling through history. God has decided what the destination of the train will be, and the best place to be is on the train. The way to get on the train is to believe that Jesus paid the penalty for your sins – faith alone in Christ alone. In this passage, we have the opportunity to clarify our thinking about ourselves: Where are we in history? Where are you in God’s assignment for you? Are you on the train?
