  • Imitators Not Pretenders

    Contributed on Oct 14, 2020

    Paul wanted to ensure the Thessalonians imitated the example he had lived before them, and most importantly, the example of Christ. Rather than pretending to emulate their faith, they were to actively live out their faith.

    Imitators not Pretenders 1 Thessalonians 2: 10-13 As I studied this passage I was reminded of the need for sincerity and genuineness among the church. We live in a day plagued with hypocrisy. One of the most offered arguments against attending church in our generation is the presence of more

  • The Pursuit Of Ministry

    Contributed on Oct 8, 2020

    Things have changed much since the first century, and yet much remains the same. Paul realized the danger of majoring on the minor and minoring on the major. His insight still speaks for ministries today.

    The Pursuit of Ministry 1 Thessalonians 2: 4-9 We have spent much time laying the groundwork for our study in this precious book. Paul was well aware of the faithfulness and influence the church in Thessalonica had on those around them. He was encouraged with the presence of their faith, more

    Contributed on Sep 30, 2020

    Who has influenced your life? Would you agree that we are in need of those who can and do make a significant impact on others for the cause of Christ? Our current society needs those of influence.

    The Steps of a Good Man 1 Thessalonians 2: 1-3 As we consider the social climate of our modern society, we would have to agree that we stand in desperate need of leadership. Things have certainly changed in recent years, and much of that change has not been for the better. There seems to be a more

    Thessalonica had been impacted by the gospel, and the believers there well understood its significance. Their faithfulness to the gospel serves as a challenge for all believers.

    The Significance of the Gospel (Part 2) 1 Thessalonians 1: 5-10 Last week we began our study in these verses dealing with the significance of the gospel. Clearly Paul was aware of its significance; he had been transformed by the gospel and he had witnessed the transformation of countless more

  • The Significance Of The Gospel (Part 1)

    Having encountered the grace of God on the Damascus Road, Paul's life and eternity were completely transformed. Knowing what had happened, and the change that had taken place in him, he was convinced of the relevance of the gospel for all men.

    The Significance of the Gospel (Part 1) 1 Thessalonians 1: 5-10 In our last study Paul greeted the Thessalonian church, encouraging them in the Lord. He reminded them of their position, revealed his prayer for them, and acknowledged their labor of love. Now his attention is turned toward the more
