3-Week Series: Double Blessing


Summary: We all need encouragement

Paul described his work among the Thessalonians as, "encouraging, comforting, and urging you to live lives worthy of God" (2:12). While ministry can be rewarding, there are without a doubt times when Paul and his brothers and sisters in ministry also needed encouragement (3:6-7).

For Paul and his brothers in ministry, a few of the causes behind discouragement were:

Uncertainty. (Acts 16:6-40)

2. Hostility. (Acts 17:1 9)

3. Anxiety. (2:17-18)

Those whom Paul was writing to in Thessalonia also faced discouragement through the following:

1. Physical danger. (1:6)

2. Spiritual doubt. (3:5)

3. Social disruption. (2:17)

Some ways we can find encouragement:

1. The Word of God

2. Prayer

3. Thankfulness

4. Humility.
