1 Thessalonians 1:1
Aug 01, 2004 am - Today, with God's blessing, we'll begin to study the Thessalonian Epistles. Epistle, you know, is a fancy word for letter. That's what we have here, letters written by Paul and sent to his friends in Thessalonica. But this is not all we have-we also have Scripture. I and 2 Thessalonians are both ... More >>>

Aug 08, 2004 am - Today, with God's blessing, we'll move on in our study of the Thessalonian Epistles. An Epistle, you know, is another word for letter. And that's what we have here-two letters written from Paul to the church he started in Macedonia a few years before. The letters bear all the marks of a personal ... More >>>

Aug 15, 2004 am - Today, with God's help, we'll move on in our study of Thessalonians. The two Letters were sent to a church long ago in a place far away. But they are not artifacts, of interest to historians only. They are the Word of God and speak as directly to us as they did to the people way back then. The ... More >>>

Aug 29, 2004 am - Today, with God's help, we'll move on in our study of Thessalonians. I and 2 Thessalonians are not books; they are letters, written by Paul and mailed to a church he founded a few years before. Unlike some of his stormier works, these are full of tenderness and affection. Paul loves these people, ... More >>>

1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:13
Sep 05, 2004 am - In the Book of Revelation, our Lord rebukes a church for losing its first love. The people were solid in other ways, but the bloom of their love was off the rose. They didn't hate each other; they weren't splitting into factions; and they still had the shell of brotherly love. But that's all they ... More >>>

1 Thessalonians 4:1-12
Sep 12, 2004 am - The topic of today's passage is Pleasing God. The outline could not be simpler: Paul begins with the duty to please God in verses 1-2, then he gives three examples of pleasing God in the verses that follow. His method is wise because there's no such thing as a general holiness. To say, Your life ... More >>>

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Sep 19, 2004 am - The Thessalonians were fascinated by the Second Coming of Christ. Paul preached the doctrine when he was with them and they accepted it from the heart. For some time, the Lord's Return was a cause for celebration-and you understand why. The Christians were a small and hated minority. Their families ... More >>>

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11
Sep 26, 2004 am - The Thessalonians were keenly interested in the Second Coming of Christ. We know they were because Paul wrote more to them about it than he did all of his other books put together. Today, some Christians are preoccupied with the Lord's Return, and this is neither right nor safe. But we don't ... More >>>

Oct 03, 2004 am - The title of today's sermon is What to Do Till Jesus Comes. The Thessalonians believed in the Second Coming of Christ, and they looked forward to it with great enthusiasm. They were right on both counts. The Lord is coming again, and for believers, this will be the happiest day of our lives. When ... More >>>

1 Thessalonians 5:23-28
Oct 24, 2004 am - A couple of years ago, I wrote a booklet of thirty or thirty-five pages. After running a spell check and proofreading it several times, I turned it over to a friend for final editing. Of course, I knew it wasn't perfect, and I thought she'd make, oh, half a dozen corrections. And I was right: ... More >>>
