We’ve begun to study 2 Thessalonians in church before we move on to a series that deepens our commitment to our core convictions on church & discipleship.
So what can we learn from this first chapter?
- Faith is supposed to grow (v.3)
- So is love for your brothers & sisters in Christ (v.3)
- Perseverance & faith keeps you going through persecution & trial (v.4)
- God rewards those who endure for His sake (v.5)
- We don’t need to concern ourselves with revenge but can trust God to do justice (v.6)
- When Jesus comes back it will be spectacular (v.7)
- There is judgement on those who reject Christ (v.8)
- This judgement is final & eternal (v.9)
- Those who believe will marvel (v.10)
- It’s by the power of God that anything gets done (v.11)
- Jesus gets the glory (v.12)
