We are going to find Paul in this section of his letter, praying for the believers in Thessalonica. This is not unusual for Paul, throughout his letters we find Paul offering over 42 different prayers in his letters for the various churches and gatherings of believers with whom he was in a relationship.

We continue our study in 1 Thessalonians and this week we are looking at a challenging passage that calls us to optimize opportunities to receive and act on what God reveals to us. There’s a really provocative comparison made between those who do and those who don’t. And these Scriptures contain some “controversial” comments that Paul made about his Jewish brethren.

In this section of the letter, the Apostle Paul is responding to some objections being made about his ministry and message while in Thessalonica. These accusations are from the same people who ran him out of town. They want to harm his credibility to reduce his ongoing impact in their city.  We will follow his example about guarding our impact and influence, especially when we run into some opposition in life. Because what we believe and what we do in the dark can make the light of Christ burn brighter in our lives.

Standing Firm in the Lord

This study is a verse-by-verse deep dive into the books of 1 & 2 Thessalonians. The theme of the study comes from a statement that Paul makes in both letters: stand firm in the Lord. This will be a strong word of encouragement for all of us as we seek to deepen our connection with Christ.
