Thesis:Paul's reference, again, to the coming of "our Lord Jesus Christ" indicates the link between our "deliverance" and our entrance into "the Joy".

Introduction:As Paul winds up this second chapter (the translators' division of his material, not his own) of his letter, we find him returning to his main theme: the coming of Jesus as the "Hope" of the believer. In this return to his main theme we find him linking the two issues first mentioned in 1:9-10: the "turn to God" was "to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven". There is, in this, a clear declaration that the "service" is motivated by "the Hope".

This evening we are going to consider Paul's example as something to imitate.
