|Staying in the Word|
Chapter Two, Lesson Four
BOUNTY IN CHRIST 1Thessalonians 2:13-20 Print this Bible Study
** Let's go back to our passage from last week, please open your Bibles to 1Thessalonians 2:10. If we are going to be "Burdened in Christ" for other saints, as was Paul for the Thessalonian believers, what kind of behavior or character should be driving our life and ministry according to verse ten?
** Which three activities should naturally flow from that kind of lifestyle according to verse eleven?
** What will we experience if we are faithful to build up others in the word of God? Today we have the joy of watching Paul look forward to his "Bounty in Christ", which he would receive directly due to the time he spent pouring God's word into the lives of others. If we wish to produce that same "Bounty", we must learn from Paul how to maintain our focus on God's precious word. Please look with me now at verses 13-20, here in 1Thessalonians, chapter two.
