Chapter Two, Lesson Three
BURDENED IN CHRIST 1Thessalonians 2:9-12 Download this Bible Study
** In our study last week, Paul showed us three methods or styles of evangelism which are to be avoided at all costs. Do you recall what they were?
** What is the cost behind sharing the gospel? How will our relationship with the lost change, if they receive it into their hearts so as to be saved?
** There is a logical progression in the chapter we are currently studying together. If we are "Bold in Christ", we will find ourselves becoming "Bound in Christ" to those who hear and respond to our boldness. The next step of our journey is for us to become "Burdened in Christ" for those He saves. Today Paul will manifest his own heartfelt burden for the Thessalonians, and by example give us the pattern we should form in our own lives. Let's read our passage together.
