1 Thessalonians 2

February 23, 2008

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  3. I like v.8 … we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well …

    I find it interesting too because it seems Paul only spent three Sabbaths with them yet he has connected with them emotionally as well as spiritually.

  5. 3For our exhortation does not come from error or impurity or by way of deceit; but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who examines our hearts.

    For we never came with flattering speech, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed–
    God is witness– nor did we seek glory from men, either from you or from others, even though as apostles of Christ we might have asserted our authority.

    But we proved to be gentle among you, as a nursing mother tenderly cares for her own children. Having so fond an affection for you,

    Oh that we would have these kinds of leaders among us today… ๐Ÿ™

    Too many pastors today make a “living” out of a pretense of being spiritual leaders.

  7. v.20 Indeed, you are our glory and joy.

    Barclay made the comment about this verse: "A man's greatest glory lies in those whom he has set or helped on the path to Christ."

    It is greatly encouraging to see those you have brought to Christ, or helped grow in Christ, to be going on with God.

  9. v.12 encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory.

    Our role is to encourage, comfort and urge others in their walk with God. I think 'comfort' is often overlooked. Some days the Christian life is difficult and we need comforting especially from our brothers and sisters in Christ.

  11. v.13 And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe.

    The word of God is at work in us. It is doing something good in our lives. Like a seed in the ground, invisible but effective.
