Stand firm in the Lord (1 Thess. 3:8)

“We now live,

If you continue

To stand firm

In the Lord.”

ὅτι νῦν ζῶμεν ἐὰν ὑμεῖς στήκετε ἐν Κυρίῳ.

Paul said, “We now live (ὅτι νῦν ζῶμεν), if you continue (ἐὰν ὑμεῖς) to stand firm (στήκετε) in the Lord (ἐν Κυρίῳ).”  Paul emphasized the importance of faith among the Thessalonians.  He would continue to live, if they remained strong in their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Paul almost seemed to say that his life depended on their faith in Jesus Christ.  His life was revived by their strong faith.  Does your life depend on the faith of others?
