This week, we will be sharing some thoughts from the study of 1 Thessalonians 2 and 3.
Below are some questions for reflection
1 Thessalonians 2:1-16
How does Paul defend himself and his companions from the charges brought against them? How can Paul and the others preach with joy and perseverance in the face of this persecution (v. 4)? What characteristics do Paul and the others show as they work with these new Christians?
1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:12
For what reason is Timothy sent to visit the Thessalonian Christians? What ideas do you see in this chapter about how you can encourage other Christians that are far away from you? What requests does Paul make of God for the Thessalonians?
