Ephesians 4:21

Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus.
(NIV)
The way of Christ is a way that is marked with truth. I am not talking about figurative truth or truth for me, I am talking about real solid truth.

Truth is absolute. Common sense will tell you that. Any child can figure this one out. You don't need to go out and figure out what your own truth is, you need to be a seeker of truth. Truth about existence, truth about eternity, truth about how to live, truth about how to have joy... Be a seeker of truth.

If you believe in Christ, then you are a believer in the Truth, and your seeking should all flow to Him. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, but don't stop with the truth that He came to make a way to God. Seek also His truth about how to live on this earth, how to exist with other human beings, how to bring up your family, how to deal with depression, how to love your enemies and others that have hurt you, how to forgive, how to deal with addictions, how to handle your past, how to control your anger, and so on...

You came to Him in truth, now it is time to live in His truth.

1 Thessalonians 2:19

For what is our hope or joy or crown of boasting before our Lord Jesus at his coming? Is it not you?  (1 Thessalonians 2:19 -- ESV) Three things mentioned here... "hope" ... "joy" ... "crown of boasting" ...  Hope - What does Paul have his sights set on?  Joy - What is it that brings Paul joy?  Crown of Boasting - That Olympic Wreath of Glory that is placed on his head?  It is these people. It is his children in the faith. They are Paul's Hope and Joy and Crown of Glory when Jesus returns. 

1 Thessalonians 2:20

For you are our glory and joy.  (1 Thessalonians 2:20 - ESV) Short and sweet verse at the end of chapter 2. Paul wants the new Christians in Thessalonica to know that ... in the end ... the thing that will lift him up the most and bring him the most joy

1 Thessalonians 2:17

But since we were torn away from you, brothers, for a short time, in person not in heart, we endeavored the more eagerly and with great desire to see you face to face, (1 Thessalonians 2:17 - ESV) "... we were torn away from you ..." If you go back to Acts 17:1-10, you can read about the quick departure from Thessalonica. But Paul wants them to know that the separation is only physical, he is still with them in heart and has a strong desire to return to them. His desire is to see them "face to face"...  What is interesting though, is that this is the first letter of Paul's. Paul has discovered a new way of ministry. Paul has had to adjust his preferred ministry, but we have all benefited from this new process of teaching to those that he cannot see face-to-face. This benefit has stretched through the centuries and has served to fulfill God's purposes of spreading the gospel to every nation on earth.
