presence of our Lord
1 Thessalonians 2:19
2:19 presence of our Lord. Since the Thessalonian believers had come to Christ as a result of Paul’s ministry there, their presence in the Christian host when Christ returns would of itself be a great reward to Paul—his crown of rejoicing. The same, no doubt, will apply for all who will have the joy of seeing those whom they have had a part in leading to Christ there in His presence when He comes again.
