Open your Bible to 1 Thessalonians 3 9 For what thanks can we give to God for you in return for all the joy with which we rejoice because of you before our God, 10 as we keep praying most earnestly night and day that we may see your faces, and may complete what is lacking in your faith? 11 Now may our God and Father Himself, and our Lord Jesus, direct our way to you; 12 and may the Lord cause you to…

How Satan Hinders Us – 1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:8

Open your Bible to 1 Thessalonians 2 17 But we, brothers and sisters, having been orphaned from you by absence for a short while—in person, not in spirit—were all the more eager with great desire to see your face. 18 For we wanted to come to you—I, Paul, more than once—and Satan hindered us. 19 For who is our hope, or joy or crown of pride, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming?

Context Matters – 1 Thessalonians 2:14-16

Open your Bible to 1 Thessalonians 2:14-16 14 For you, brothers and sisters, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea, for you also endured the same sufferings at the hands of your own countrymen, even as they did from the Jews, 15 who both killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out. They are not pleasing to God, but hostile to all people, 16 hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles so that…

Godly Leadership, Godly Lives – 1 Thessalonians 2:1-12

Open your Bible to 1 Thessalonians 2 Paul’s Ministry For you yourselves know, brothers and sisters, that our reception among you was not in vain, 2 but after we had already suffered and been treated abusively in Philippi, as you know, we had the boldness in our God to speak to you the gospel of God amid much opposition. 3 For our exhortation does not come from error or impurity or by way of deceit; 4 but just as we have been approved…
